Creag Mac Ranaich and Meall an t-Seallaidh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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
