Munros North of Scotland

Our B&B in Culrain is well situated for climbing some of the northernmost Munros, Corbetts and Grahams in Scotland. We also understand the needs of climbers and walkers, and thus can provide packed lunches and evening meals, as well as a space for drying wet clothing and storing muddy boots, plus service washes for your muddy clothing (if it happens to rain)!

Please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee the viability of some of the routes we have suggested e.g. in terms of access to the land. You may need to contact the relevant estate offices, especially during the deer stalking season.

Seana Bhraigh (926m) from Oykel Bridge

There is a route into Seana Bhraigh via the Scottish National Trail at Oykel Bridge (which is about 16 miles from our B&B) through Glen Einig and then Strath Mulzie. Seana Bhraigh is very remote and this appears to be as good a route as any. The tracks through Glen Einig and Strath Mulzie are easily walkable.

Ben Klibreck (962m) from the Crask Inn

The popular Crask Inn is the standard ascent for Ben Klibreck, and is less than 30 miles from Culrain. Further north is Ben Hope (927m) though it might be a bit of long drive there and back in a day from Culrain.

Ben Wyvis (1046m) from Loch Glass

Although normally climbed from the Dingwall to Ullapool road, there is an ascent from the east via Loch Glass (about 30 miles from Culrain) and Glas Leathad Beag which is near the village of Evanton. A route description.

Ben More Assynt (998m) and Conival (987m) from Glen Cassley

Although normally climbed from Inchnadamph Lodge (about 35 miles from Culrain), there is an ascent from the east from near Duchally Lodge in Glen Cassley (about 23 miles from Culrain) and there is another ascent from Glenoykel via Loch Ailsh (also 23 miles from Culrain) near Ledmore Junction. A route description.

Beinn Dearg (1084m) via Gleann Mor and Gleann Beag

There also appears to be a route into the Beinn Dearg set of munros via Gleann Mor (in the Amat Forest area) and Gleann Beag. These include Meall nan Ceapraichean (977m), Eididh nan Clach Geala (926m) and Cona Mheall (977m). Although a longer walk-in than from the west, the through-tracks appear to be pretty good and may make for a relatively easy approach. Am Faochagach (954m) may be approachable in this way too.
