Carn na Nathrach, from Glen Hurich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn na Nathrach lies hidden from most views amongst a group of higher peaks. It is a fine viewpoint, however, and the ascent along its long and rough ridge makes an enjoyable, surprisingly strenuous outing.


Track for approach, then rough hillwalking. There is a faint path of sorts but the lower sections are boggy, and all the ridge is rough.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking at NM815673. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
