Aonach Eagach

Guided traverse of the Aonach Eagach Ridge in Glencoe

The Aonach Eagach (appropriately meaning 'notched ridge') runs along the northern side of Glencoe and is probably the most famous ridge in the country. Viewed from Glencoe below, the Aonach Eagach appears as a narrow crest with a series of small towers. It is only once onto the crest that the scale and size of the ridge of becomes apparent.
