Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Spidean a'Choire Leith is the highest summit of mighty Liathach. The mountain is exceptionally well defended by cliffs and buttresses and there are very few possible routes of ascent - and even these are steep and scrambly. The ridge on both sides of the summit is nothing short of magnificent.
