SliochMajestic Slioch towers above Loch Maree and its beauty is often featured on scenic calendars. It's one of those mountains that looks truly impenetrable from most viewpoints.
Main route summary

Although the route described is pretty straightforward, Slioch has some unusual topography, which in mist can be quite confusing, therefore well-honed navigation skills are essential.
