A short hillwalk taking advantage of a start at over 2000 feet. Sgùrr a Chaorachain is a Corbett summit, and though easy to reach has very dramatic mountain views.


The walk is high and exposed throughout. As far as the TV mast it follows an easy track, but beyond it is pathless and follows a rocky ridge with steep sides.

Public Transport



Parking area at the summit of the Bealach Na Ba. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
