Glen Orchy Corbetts

The Corbetts on either side of Glen Orchy are quiet hills overshadowed in all directions by higher and more impressive ranges. Astute hill-walkers will quicky therefore realise what views that must be offered by these hills on clear days !


Main route summary


Beinn Ulaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath form a circuit accessed either from Glen Orchy to the north, or more readily Glen Lochy to the south.

The quartzite dyke running northwards down Beinn Bhreac-liath is most impressive and there's gold in there !

Beinn Mhic Mhonaidh is a grass covered hill surrounded by forestry, fortunately good tracks enable quick and easy access to the foothills.
