Carn Eige and Mam Sodhail

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn Eige and Mam Sodhail are the two highest mountains north of the Great Glen and spectacular viewpoints. This long, wild mountain walk around a horse-shoe of ridges becomes something of an epic by the (optional) addition of the very remote Munro of Beinn Fhionnlaidh.


Small sections of rocky and awkward ground and some bogs on the approach and route back, but also many miles of good walking on grassy ridges.
