Gaick Corbetts: An Dun and Meall Creag an Loch

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The two, steeply flanked Corbetts that rise on either side of Loch an Duin at the top of the Gaick Pass give an excellent hillwalk in a unique corner of Scotland, with a feeling of remoteness. The tops of the hills are flat and spacious, but are divided from their neighbours by great ice-gouged trenches. A mountain bike could be used to shorten the approach.

Terrain

Good approach track (suitable for mountain bike). Short stretches of very boggy ground and a burn crossing which could be tricky in spate. Extremely steep heather and grass ascents and descents on the hills.

Public Transport

There are bus stopping areas on the A9 by the turn off for Trinafour at Dalnacardoch Lodge. Traveline Scotland.
