Ardverikie MunrosLying between Laggan and Alder, the Ardverikie Forest is a wild area containing three Munro peaks.
Creag Pitridh is a rough little hill, linked to much larger Geal Charn via a grassy col with a re-ascent of only 100m. Beinn a'Chlachair is the dominant mountain in the group - vast, complex, fairly pathless and requires respect when mist is down !
Main route summary
The tracks are suitable for biking on all of these approaches and will considerably cut down on time needed. Higher up, the vast plateaux of Geal Charn and Beinn a'Chlachair will test navigation skills in mist and white-out !
