Aonach Buidhe, via Glen Elchaig

Aonach Buidhe is a remote Corbett at the heart of one of the wildest parts of the Highlands. The easiest approach is along beautiful Glen Elchaig - greatly eased by the user of a mountain bike (saving four hours off the time given). The upper slopes on this route are undistinguished.


Excellent track up Glen Elchaig to near Iron Lodge - use of a mountain bike will save alot of time. Beyond the track the initial ascent is on very steep grass; the upper slopes are gentler but boggier.
