Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan group, Alltbeithe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Strenuous walk over some of the remotest mountains in Britain. Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan is a magnificent peak; whilst Mullach na Dheiragain is prized for its inaccessibility whilst An Socach has a view down Glen Affric.


There is a reasonable path along the ridges, boggy in parts on the ascent. The ridges themselves are mostly grassy, rocky in places. The short cut via Loch Coire nan Dearcag is steep and pathless.

Public Transport

None. Morvich and the Cluanie Inn in Kintail are both on Citilink bus routes.


Alltbeithe (Glen Affric YHA) - no road access. Map and directions.
