The only Munros in Assynt, these two rocky mountains are connected by a fine ridge. Together they give a very rough but rewarding ascent combined with the amazing views characteristic of all the Assynt peaks.


Good narrow path up the glen, then some boggy and eroded ground on the ascent to the ridge. Higher up the mountains are extremely rocky and largely scree-covered making for very rough going.

Public Transport

Limited bus to start.


Car park by Inchnadamph hotel. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
