An Sìdhean from Loch Monar, Glen Strathfarrar

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This rather flat-topped Corbett lies in the heart of a wild and remote part of the Highlands, but access via the road up Glen Strathfarrar and good stalkers paths on the approach make it a relatively straightforward walk in beautiful surroundings. The difficulty is reduced to Grade 3 if the outward route is retraced for the return.


Excellent stalkers paths on approach, then open hillside; return route is rougher going.
