Monadh Mòr

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Monadh Mòr is a vast plateau in the very heart of the wild Cairngorms. Its ascent - usually combined with Beinn Bhrotain - requires a great deal of effort, whether approached across the vast plateaux from Glen Feshie or via the more obvious route past White Bridge and the Linn of Dee, or up Glen Geusachan.

Detailed route description and map

Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mòr from Glen Feshie

Other routes and challenges

The obvious alternative to the route given above is to start from the Linn of Dee to White Bridge and then make the ascent from Glen Dee, taking in Beinn Bhrotain first. This route could include Càrn Clioch-mhuillin, which was originally a Munro and was intended by Sir Hugh to be his final ascent. After Monadh Mòr, the descent could be made down the boggy Glen Geusachan.

The standard ascents are epic enough for most. However, from Monadh Mòr you could head up the SW ridge of Sgòr an Lochan Uaine to link with that range.
