Poolewe to Mhaighdean Munro

  • Mhaighdean Latitude 57.719609 Longitude: -5.348044


These seven Munros lie in the heart of one of the most remote areas of Scotland, with A'Mhaighdean lying further from a main road than any other Munro in the country.

To bag the 5 Munros in Fisherfield (with Beinn a'Chlaidheimh, affectionately known as the "Big 6"), most people back-pack into Shenavall and tick the peaks off over two days, leaving An Teallach to be climbed another day. 
It is however perfectly possible for fit hill-walkers to do all seven Munro peaks in one outing. 
This will require the classic scramble over Corrage Bhuidhe to be omitted. 
However this is compensated for, by finding a huge, hidden waterfall cascading into a dark chasm on the south side of An Teallach. Good paths are present along most of the route and a fine track is followed out of the area at the end of the day. Head south-west from Ruadh Stac Mor's summit over bouldery ground.Look for some cairns and pick up a faint path to the edge of some steep ground.
The path turns left, scramble down the loose sandstone to the bealach at 750m and pick up an obvious path coming the north-west.
This path crosses the bealach (look out for the 'shelter stone'), becoming fainter, then obvious again, then starts to climb up the steep grassy ground to the flat summit, just north of A'Mhaighdean.
Reach this, then head south-south-west over fine gravel for 350m to the summit. 
This is a superb remote location to stop and take time to enjoy the views all around.
It should be noted that where there are no paths, well-honed navigation skills are essential for progress in mist, particularly when heading off A'Mhaighdean and the route between Sgurr Ban and Beinn a'Chlaidheimh.
