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' Chòinich is a more shapely peak with rocky ridges.


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

None to start.


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