Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two fine, steep and rocky Munros are in fairly close proximity to the road and some excellent stalkers paths make this an enjoyable and easier climb than most high peaks in the Northwest. NOTE: Road to Kinloch Hourn currently closed until mid 2019 - no vehicular access to start of this route.


Excellent (and in descent, spectacular) stalkers paths ease the going on these otherwise steep and rocky peaks.
