Meall na h-Eilde and Geal Charn, Loch Arkaig

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This pair of Corbetts lying to the north of the foot of Loch Arkaig have a mostly rounded, heathery character. They occupy a great position, however, giving stunning views over Loch Arkaig and Loch Quoich in good conditions towards the rugged peaks of the wild west.


Boggy track to start, stalkers path up glen then pathless heathery hills. Good going on the higher ground.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking in forestry east of Achnasaul. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
