Cul Beag is perhaps one of the less climbed of the strange, monolithic peaks of Coigach, but it is a hill of great character and a stunning viewpoint. The shortest ascent is from Linneraineach, but the longer eastern approach gives a gentler route.
Stalkers' path for approach, then open heather slopes.
Infrequent bus service passes the start.
A835 south of Knockan Crag.
