Strenuous walk over some of the remotest mountains in Britain. Sgùrr nan Ceathreamhnan is a magnificent peak; whilst Mullach na Dheiragain is prized for its inaccessibility.


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. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
