Braeriach is the third highest mountain in Britain, and its remote position ensures it is a tougher proposition and far less visited than its higher rivals. In good conditions this is a magnificent circuit taking in scenery from Caledonian pinewoods to a storm-swept plateau high above dramatic corries.

Terrain

Mostly the actual terrain is fairly straightforward; the descent route is rougher. Navigation can be very difficult on the plateau and this is a long, tough walk through exceptionally exposed terrain.

Public Transport

No public transport to Whitewell; an alternative start would be Coylumbridge.

Start

Parking at Whitewell. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
