An Teallach, Dundonnell

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This fabled mountain is perhaps the most impressive in Britain, and gives a day of drama and views that will live in the memory forever. The full traverse is a magnificent scramble, whilst the two Munros can be reached by an easier there-and-back route.


Steep rocky mountain terrain (boggy lower down). The full traverse of the ridge involves much scrambling with great exposure; this can be made easier by following bypass paths or alternatively just climbing the main peaks.
