Beinn Udlamain and Sgairneach Mhor

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This southern pair of the four Munros on the west side of the Drumochter Pass are heathery hills rather than true mountains; the views, however, are good on a clear day.


Mostly straightforward hillwalking, with wetter terrain lower down and good walking on mossy turf along the ridges. The descent from Beinn Udlamain is very steep and rough in parts.

Public Transport

None to start.


Layby on A9 at entrance to Coire Dhomhain. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
