Coulin Corbetts

The mountainous area between Glen Carron and Glen Torridon is known as Coulin Forest. When Torridon's weather is grey and overcast, the tops of the higher peaks in Torridon and Coulin will be sulking in thick mist. Often at this time Sgurr Dubh and Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine on the southern side of Glen Torridon will be cloud free and well worth clambering over.


Main route summary


After aiming in via a fine Right-of-Way path, interesting morraine pitted landscapes are crossed to reach vast boulderfields protecting deep clefts and hidden lochans.

The views from the summits are stunning particularly towards the Torridon and other Coulin peaks, but also to Applecross and beyond.
