Glamaig and the northern Red Hills

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Glamaig and the northern Red Hills give a fine circuit with punishing scree but unparalleled views.


Very steep slopes of scree and stones have to be negotiated, particularly on Glamaig (which can be omitted). The lower ground is very boggy in places. There is a path for most of the route.
