The heather-clad slopes of Aonach Shasuinn sit in a fairly remote setting hidden between Glen Affic and Glen Moriston.

Along with neighbouring Corbett, Carn a' Choire Ghairbh, Aonach Shasuinn can be hiked over on a fine circular route approaching from the north-east in Glen Affric.

A slightly longer circuit heads in from Glen Moriston - more challenging with the option to hike over the Munro peaks of Sail Chaorainn, Sgurr nan Conbhairean and Carn Ghluasaid on route.
