Streap, near Glenfinnan
Streap is a magnificent mountain, perhaps the finest in the area and the highest, pointed summit of a fine sharp ridge which lies to the east of Glenfinnan. At 909 metres it is one of the highest of the Corbetts. It is generally well hidden except from the north - there is a grand view to its northern corrie from Strachan at the head of Loch Arkaig.
The walk throughout is very rough, rocky and often pathless. There is some moderate exposure on the narrow ridge and the summit is quite airy but there are no real difficulties.
Bus services run along the A830; Glenfinnan (2.5km) has a train station.
Parking off the A830 just west of bridge over the Dubh Lighe.
