Coire an t-Sneachda is one of the most accessible of Britain's high mountain corries, the ski station car park and a superbly constructed path ensuring its popularity. The corrie itself is a grand cirque of cliffs, slashed by snow for much of the year and a popular venue for rock and ice-climbing depending on the season.


Well made paths but situation can be very exposed; hillwalking gear should be carried. Despite the easy access the floor of the corrie is over 900 metres up.
