Moidart's Corbetts

West of Loch Ailort, the three Corbett hills of An Stac, Sgurr na Ba Glaise and Rois-Bheinn form a compact group, easily climbed in an afternoon.

The views from all the summits, and in particular the interupted panoramas from An Stac and the western top of Rois-Bheinn are superb westwards over to Rhum and Skye.


Main route summary


Sitting on grassy terrain, the craggy summits are suprisingly easily attained. Most people climb these peaks from near the Lochailort Hotel to the north, however heading from Alisay to the west is far shorter and makes for a delightful circuit.

Access on the lower slopes is on pathless and generally wet grass and rush covered ground. Higher up walls aid navigation, but paths are faint and still few and far between.
