Creag an Duine from Seana Bhraigh

Seana Bhraigh

Distinctive Munro east of Loch Broom

Standing in the Inverlael and Freevater wilderness, Seana Bhraigh competes with A' Mhaighdean in Fisherfield for the title of the most remote Munro, its summit overlooking crags and cliffs above Luchd Coire.

Seana Bhraigh's southern aspects give the impression of grass-covered rolling hillsides. However, viewed from the north, Seana Bhraigh is a stunning mountain, its summit standing atop a glacially sculpted coire encircling a lost lochan.

Regardless of direction, Seana Bhraigh's remote location means a fair bit of distance will need covered to travel from roadside to the summit. Fortunately cyclable estate tracks penetrate Seana Bhraigh's wild setting, cutting down the effort required to bag this elusive Munro. A detour to the north-eastern summit of Creag an Duine involves some rock-scrambling on loose terrain.

The approach from Oykel Bridge through Strath Mulzie is the easiest approach should you wish to bag Seana Bhraigh on its own or along with the Corbett Carn Ban.

A longer and more satisfying day can be had hiking Seana Bhraigh from Loch Broom and with other Inverlael Munros, giving much scope to extend or shorten the route depending on conditions.
