West of Loch Lochy

As you drive along the A82 north of Spean Bridge, Sron a'Choire Ghairbh and Meall na Teanga dramatically come into view. They stand high and impossing above Loch Lochy and are accessed by Kilfinnan on the other side of Laggan Locks.


Main route summary


Forestry tracks make for rapid and easy progress to the lower slopes of these Munros. Fine stalkers paths take over and continue to just below the summits, from where navigation is fairly straightforward.

Immediately behind these hills and hidden from the A82 are several smaller hills with fine views, including Ben Tee, a fine Corbett with great views. These along with alternative routes up the Munros are accessed from the 'Mile Dorcha' and the Eas Chia-aig - a splendid waterfall used for many wedding backdrop photographs !
