These three Munros are quite isolated in the wilds south of Loch Laggan. Beinn a'Chlachair is a massive whale-like ridge with steep sides, Geal Charn a sprawling mass and Creag Pitridh a pointed summit on its northern slopes.


Good approach tracks, then steep, pathless mountains with both grassy and stony sections. Peat bog on the approach to Beinn a'Chlachair and extremely steep on the descent.
