Detailed route description and map

Toll Creagach and Tom a' Choinich from Glen Affric

Other routes and challenges

An alternative to the route used in descent in the above route is to tackle the Creag na h-Inghinn ridge. The stalkers' paths on the northern side are of little use since their foot was flooded with Loch Mullardoch.

For the truly superfit, the massive challenge hereabouts is the complete Mullardoch round, following ridges that can take in up to 12 Munros, usually accomplished as a lightweight backpacking route.
