Detailed route description and map

A'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch Choire from Cluanie

Other routes and challenges

The A'Chralaig - Mullach Fraoch-choire ridge is linked to the Sgurr nan Conbhairean group by the Bealach Choire a' Chaitt.

To ascend all five Munros in the group, the best option is a starting point in the remote upper reaches of Glen Affric to the north, though the approach to the foot of the ridges is very long and would usually require an overnight stay. The Corbett Carn a' Choire Ghairbh could also be included.
