Creag Rainich, via Loch a'Bhraoin

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

When approached from the east, Creag Rainich has rounded and fairly gentle, open slopes compared to the jagged drama of some of its neighbours. The summit, however, is a stunning viewpoint into the Fisherfield Forest.


Track along Loch a'Bhraoin; the hill itself is mostly pathless with boggy ground lower down.

Public Transport

None to start.


Layby on A832, south west of Braemore junction. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
