Streap, near Glenfinnan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Streap is a magnificent mountain, just 5m below Munro height but ranking amongst the finest Corbetts. This route approachs it along a grand, undulating ridge with a dramatic final arete leading up to the summit. The route continues over the subsidiary peak of Streap Comhlaidh before a long, steep grassy descent. The route gives a more strenuous day than a glance at the map might suggest.

Track for approach, then rough, often steep and pathless hillwalking.

Public Transport

Bus services run along the A830; Glenfinnan (2.5km) has a train station.

Start

Parking off the A830 just west of bridge over the Dubh Lighe. Map and directions.
