Monadhliath Munros & CorbettsThe rolling landscape that makes Monadh Liath range does not contain particularly exciting mountains ! There are no pointy peaks, narrow ridges or great cliffs or crags to be found here, you'll need to head elsewhere in the Highlands for these.
The Monadh Liath however is vast and as no roads penetrate into the area, there's a real sense of remoteness and plenty of breathing space here. Look around when you in here as you're bound to see wildlife !
Main route summary
Higher up the vast plateaux are places to get easily lost in, but lines of fence-posts with faint paths can be traced. If doing the route in full, note that from Carn Dearg to Geal Charn there are no posts to follow and good navigation skills will be needed.
