Route information
Na Gruagaichean* is the most prominent Mamores Munro above Kinlocheven, and from our Event Centre, the road at the Startline will feel like a runway for the beginning of your kilometre of ascent up this fine mountain.
The route soon switches into a rocky path in some steep woodland, passes beside the Grey Mare’s Waterfall, and pushes up out of the trees and onto the open hillside using good narrow paths. At 330m altitude, a short section of rough vehicle track is used, and leaving this track marks the start of the mountain’s steep flank, and then to its shoulder. This route is a lesser used approach to this mountain and is impressively direct.
The clear goal is the southern promontory approach ridge where the Leachd na h-Aire cairn can be found, and the route briefly levels after this, and passes through 900m at a shallower gradient. The summit will now be in clear sight, as will the other mighty Mamores Munros east and west, and Ben Nevis and the Grey Corries to the north, and if you were to look back, Glen Coe’s (Skyline) Munros to the south. Mission accomplished!
