Start here to explore dramatic Highland peaks

The peaks to the south of Stratchcarron shelter some of the grandest, most remote scenery in the Highlands. Start here for routes up the Munros of Sgurr Choinich (the mossy peak) and Sgurr a Chaorachain (peak of the place of rowan berries), or Moruisg (the big water).

More remote still is Maoile Lunndaidh (the bare hill of the wet place) – as their names suggest, some of these mountains are rather boggy.

There's also a superb route along the lower ridge of Sgurr na Feartaig (peak of the sea pink), with stunning views. For those looking for adventure, the north-facing corries of Sgurr na Feartaig are home to some excellent ice climbs in winter. You'll find detailed route descriptions for all these mountains at Walkhighlands and Munromagic.

This is remote, rugged country and you'll need the right equipment and clothing whichever route you choose. Check our advice on hill walking before you set off.
