Creag Liath

Creag Liath is a steep-sided summit dividing the Allt Fhionnlaigh and Allt Ballach on the north side of Glen Banchor, and provides a grandstand view of the Monadhliath and Glen Banchor. It can be reached most easily using the track towards Carn Dearg which crosses its northern ridge; a enjoyable if heathery loop can be made by descending to the south.
