A Chralaig is the highest of the mountains bordering the main road to Skye. The ascent is a steep grind but the ridge walk onto Mullach Fraoch-choire is as fine as any in Kintail.


A serious hillwalk with steep terrain. There is not much scree but a little mild scrambling is needed. There is some boggy going on the return walk
