Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain from the north

Chno Dearg

Munro peak east of Loch Treig

Chno Dearg is the higher of the two Munro peaks east of Loch Treig. Domed in shape, the vast grassy slopes to the north hide its wilder south-facing crags.

Chno Dearg is a high dome-shaped mountain dominating the views southwards when driving along Glen Spean. Its slopes are grass covered and rise gently from the mass of planted forestry in the glen.

Chno Dearg is linked to its smaller Munro neighbour Stob Coire Sgriodain via a grassy wide ridge travelling westwards. Often bagged together, the most straightforward access point to these Munros is Fersit to the north, just off the A86.



Hillwalking routes up Chno Dearg



1. Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain »


East of Loch Treig are the two Munros of Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain. Very different in character and linked together by a vast grass-covered plateau, the easiest approach is from Fersit to the north-west.

Ascent : 1250m (4100ft)
Distance : 16km (10m)
Time : 6hr

2. Beinn na Lap to Chno Dearg route from Laggan »


Most people tackle Beinn na Lap on its own from Ossian. But combining this fairly remote Munro with nearby Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg and a cycle in from Laggan makes for a much more memorable day.

Ascent : 1650m (5410ft)
Distance : 42km (26m)
Time : 8hr
