Carn Ealasaid from the north

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn Ealasaid can be climbed quickly from the Lecht summit via the ski-area, or easily from Allergue to the south using a landrover track up Carn Vaich. This northern approach is rougher but more unspoilt; the descent given is pathless and very rough but you could more easily retrace your steps.


Gentle, rounded hill. Some peat hagged and boggy sections on approach. Optional alternative return route is across rough heather and tussocks.

Public Transport

None to start.


Start of track off the A939 at NJ224150. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
