Creag Mhòr and Beinn Heasgarnich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation


These two Munros give one of the more challenging outings for baggers in this part of the Highlands, requiring experience as it crosses some potentially difficult pathless terrain. Creag Mhòr is steep and craggy on the ascent with much character; Beinn Heasgarnich is a fine viewpoint but has a tricky descent with vast areas of peat bog.

Tough hillwalking, steep going, rough and often without paths; excellent navigation skills are needed. The descent from Beinn Heasgarnich heads across peat-hagged and featureless terrain.
