Glen Feshie and Rothiemurchus Munros

Sgor Gaoith and Mullach Clach a'Bhlair lie in the heart of Rothiemurchus - 10,000 acres of Caledonian forest, lochs, rivers, glens, mountains, and wild landscapes.

Many features of the last ice-age can be picked out while wandering around in this wonderful area.

Main route summary


The two Munros in this group couldn't be more different - Sgor Gaoith is craggy on its east side with long drops, whereas Mullach Clach a'Bhlair is the highest point on a vast plateau south-west of Braeriach and Cairn Toul.

Heather, juniper and forests cover the lower slopes, with good tracks and paths to access. Higher up, ground is pretty flat and can be very diffcult to navigate on in mist.
