Tom a' Choinich and Toll Creagach, Glen Affric

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These are the easiest of the Munros to reach from Glen Affric, but still a substantial walk. The two peaks are contrasting in character; Toll Creagach is a very rounded mountain with mossy upper slopes, but Tom a' Choinich is a more shapely peak with rocky ridges.

Terrain

The approach up the glen is boggy, with two burn crossings which would present problems in spate. Higher up is a mix of paths on rocky ridges, and pathless mossy slopes.

Public Transport

Glen Affric is served by a bus running three days a week in the summer. See Ross Minibuses.

Start

Car park (charge) around 200m east of Chisholme Bridge. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
