An Ruadh-stac

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

An Ruadh-stac is a steep-sided Corbett, a near neighbour of the Munro Maol Chean-dearg. Though slightly lower, it is perhaps the finer of the two peaks and provides a more dramatic and challenging ascent.


Stalkers path for the approach. The ascent of An Ruadh-stac is very steep with some scree and simple scrambling on quartzite slabs which can be very slippery when wet.
