Creagan a' Chaise, Cromdale Hills

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The Cromdale Hills are a rather unfrequented ridge, boggy in places, rising between Speyside and Strath Avon. This walk from Cromdale village visits a ruined castle, a battle site and two massive hilltop cairns with extensive views.


Quiet tarmac road, rough track, then heather path to the ridge. The ridge is broad, wet and pathless in parts across heather and bog.
