This pair of Corbetts are hidden and out of sight from most of the major routes through the glens. Creag Mac Ranaich is a hill of character with craggy buttresses on its upper slopes, whilst the higher Meall an t-Seallaidh takes the form of a long ridge. Together they make an enjoyable round from Lochearnhead.


Good track as far as the bealach between then peaks, then rougher, pathless and steep going.

Public Transport

Bus to Lochearnhead.
