Carn Chuinneag

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn Chuinneag is a distinct summit rising south of Glen Calvie, which gives a very attractive approach; the hill itself has fine stalkers' paths. The area is famous for its savage clearance. After being turned out of their homes many became refugees in the church and churchyard - their accusing graffiti still etched into the glass at Croik.
