A’ Chraileag (1120m, Munro) – the creel; Stob Coire na Craileig (1008m, Munro Top); Mullach Fraoch-choire (1102m, Munro) – summit of the heathery corrie

Sandwiched between Glen Affric and Loch Cluanie, A’ Chralaig is a massive mountain.

Despite being lesser known than many of the local hills it is actually the highest summit in Kintail.

For the full route an eight-kilometre long high-level ridge links our two Munros.

A shorter, lower day can be achieved by omitting the Munro Top and the second Munro saving 3km and 214m ascent.

Total: 15km, 1180m ascent – full route; 12km, 966m ascent – shorter route

For more details of the route visit or the Nevis Hillwalking Club Facebook page.

Walks may change at short notice due to conditions on the day and Covid restrictions.
