Creag Pitridh from Lochan na h-Earba

Creag Pitridh

Munro peak south of Loch Laggan

South of Loch Laggan is Ardverikie Estate. In the heart of this is little Creag Pitridh, hidden for the most part from roadside view. It's a rough wee Munro, with bags of character.

Driving along the A86 in Glen Spean, you'll only glimpse Creag Pitridh once you pass the lump of Binnein Shuas. Much of the recent forestry-felling has allowed a better view from the west.

Creag Pitridh scrapes into the Munro list, but what it loses in height to its neighbours Geal Charn and Beinn a'Chlachair, it more than makes up for in character. It's a rocky little hill sitting above Lochan na h-Earba with its glorious beach, perfect for a relaxed chillout after a day's Munro-bagging.

There are several possibilities for accessing Creag Pitridh, including coming in from Loch Ossian, Kinloch Laggan and from Dalwhinnie to Loch Pattack, however probably the finest is from Luiblea on Loch Laggan from where fine estate tracks reach into the wild area - excellent for biking on.
