Am Faochagach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Am Faochagach is the undistinguished Munro summit of the vast rolling moorlands north of Loch Glascarnoch. Its ascent gives a wet but fairly short day, with superb views in good conditions.


The first section of the route crosses extremely boggy moorland and is followed by a river crossing which will always mean wet feet and may be dangerous or impossible in wet periods.

Public Transport

Regular bus service between Ullapool and Inverness.


Torrandhu bridge on the A835. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
