South Glen Shiel Ridge: 7 Munros

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A marvellous ridge walk which is a Munro-baggers delight. Nowhere else in the Highlands can so many peaks be climbed in a day, with minimal descent between the summits. The views are excellent all the way.


Superb ridgewalking on a well defined grassy crest for much of the route. There are short sections of simple scrambling.

Public Transport

Layby along start of lane just east of Cluanie Inn. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
