Toll an Lochain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Toll an Lochain is one of the most magnificent corries in Scotland, its loch encircled by the serrated pinnacles of An Teallach and Corrag Buidhe. It comes as a reward for the approach walk which gives heavy going.


There is a rough, boggy path for some of the route but also some pathless sections. This walk crosses bleak terrain and is hard going; hillwalking skills and equipment required.

Public Transport

None to start.


Layby on A832 just west of the Badrallach turning. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
