Breabag and the Caves of Assynt

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Breabag may lack the dramatic outline of the other peaks in Assynt and Coigach, but it certainly provides plenty of interest. This route climbs up past the Bone Caves to make a fairly rapid ascent, but then heads north along a very rough ridge of quartzite before descending past more limestone caves to Inchnadamph. Returning to the Bone Caves car park is a 4km road walk.


Rough and rugged terrain, with moorland, heather, some bog, and quartzite boulders and slabs. 4km of roadwalking at end unless transport is arranged.
