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.

Public Transport



Coulags on A890. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
