Sgurr Breac and A'Chailleach, near Braemore

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These rewarding Munros offer a good day's walking with extensive views and a pleasant ridge walk to the Top of Tomain Coinich and on to the two main summits.


The route follows a steep, soggy path with some rocky sections to reach an easy ridge to Tom Coinich and then climbs to both Munros. The route down off the ridge from A'Chailleach is very steep and pathless and could be difficult to navigate in poor visibility. The return route around Loch a Bhraoin is very boggy.

Public Transport

None to start.


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