These are two of the highest mountains in Britain. This route avoids the ski developments on the northern flanks of Aonach Mòr which remain out of sight. It gives a fairly long, rugged and remote hillwalk with superb views.


The large summit plateau has precipitous sides in places; good navigation skills needed. Steep descent from Aonach Mòr and much boggy ground lower down.

Public Transport

Bus service May to September runs up Glen Nevis as far as Polldubh falls.


Glen Nevis road end. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
