A' Chralaig and its neighbour Mullach Fraoch-choire together form a long high-level ridge north of Loch Cluanie.

On more up-to-date maps, A' Chralaig is referred to as A' Chraileag, its correct Scot's gaelic spelling.

From Loch Cluanie, a relentless climb from Loch Cluanie up a path on A' Chralaig's grass-covered southern shoulder leads up onto a fine ridge to follow to the summit and onwards to Mullach Fraoch-choire.

With a bealach at a height of over 700m separating A' Chralaig from Sgurr nan Conbhairean, a fine day can be had walking along ridges connecting these two Munros and their neighbours.
