Coire Lagan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Coire Lagan is one of the most impressive corries in the Cuillin, a tiny loch ringed by gigantic rock peaks - an unforgettable place to visit. The walk up to it has the benefit of a good path initially, becoming rougher with some minor scrambling higher up.


Mostly on good paths; rough ground with simple scrambling near the mouth of the coire.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking at Glen Brittle above the beach. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
