Above Loch CluanieNorth of Loch Cluanie, the high peaks of A'Chralaig, Mullach Fraoch-choire and Sgurr nan Conbhairean give superb views over the Five Sisters and Affric to Skye, Torridon and beyond.
Main route summary
There are some well defined stalkers paths with terrain on the eastern three Munros being mainly of grass and heather cover. The western pair of A'Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-choire are more airy in comparison, with some boulderfields and some easy scrambling to contend with.
In winter conditions, the narrow ridge on Mullach Fraoch-choire becomes challenging !
