Càrn Dearg, Càrn Sgulain and A'Chailleach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This long hillwalk includes ascents of three of the four Monadh Liath Munros. The hills themselves are undistinguished (particularly Càrn Sgulain), but Càrn Dearg has a feeling of remoteness and the long trek across the plateau from this peak to the others gives a feeling of great space, given favourable weather.


Rough going for much of the route; tracks lower down and featureless hills higher up. A line of fenceposts is an aid to navigating across the plateau.

Public Transport

None to start; buses and trains to Newtonmore 3km from start.
