Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Braigh nan Uamhachan may lack the height and drama of its neighbouring Corbett, Streap, but after a demanding initial climb it rewards with fine views of the mountains all around.


Track for approach. Steep, pathless ascent to ridge, then difficult tussocky ground before going improves on ridge walk to summit.

Public Transport

Buses to Mallaig pass the start of the walk.


Parking off the A830 just west of bridge over the Dubh Lighe. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
