Detailed route description and map

Liathach traverse, Glen Torridon

Other routes and challenges

The flanks of the ridge are exceptionally steep, and the cliffs between the sandstone terraces are hard to see from above; this deters ascents and descents via other routes.

It is possible to make a non-scrambling ascent to Mullach an Rathain by heading up the Coire Mhic Nobuil path and then ascending Sgorr na Chadail from the northern side - see trip reports.
