Creag Mhòr is a Corbett which is dwarfed by the giant neighbouring mountains, though its summit is distinguished by a granite tor. Its position - that awkward to reach - makes it an excellent opportunity for a fine circuit, visiting the lower end of spectacular Loch Avon.


Good paths for much of the route; some boggier ground, especially on the return. Rougher going in parts and pathless on Creag Mhor. The route is very remote and far from help.
