Ben Bhraggie, Golspie

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The steep pull up Ben Bhraggie (or Beinn a'Bhragaidh to give it its proper, Gaelic name) is well rewarded by excellent views over the coastline and inland hills - on a clear day both coasts of Scotland can be seen. The massive Sutherland monument, locally known as the 'The Mannie', marks the top from where this circuit takes a gentler route down on forest tracks. Some of this walk is on trails shared with mountain bikers so care should be taken on these sections.
