Beinn a'Chaorainn and Beinn Teallach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This pair of Munros are much less visited than their better known neighbour Creag Meagaidh to the east. Their lower slopes may be boggy, but the walk along the summit ridge of Beinn a'Chaorainn is a delight.


Boggy ground lower down, with a river crossing late in the walk which could be impassable in wet weather. The upper slopes give better walking.
