Aonach Eagach

The Aonach Eagach is the most “exposed” ridge walk on mainland Scotland, only the Cuillin ridge on Skye is more exposed.
There isn’t anything too technical to the climbing of it, only a few scrambling sections, but it is all about keeping your head when you are on a very narrow ridge with the best part of 3000ft to go to the Glen floor either side of you.
For those with a good head for heights the rewards are immense. On a Clear day Rannoch Moor spreads east to Perthshire and Schehallion, Ben Nevis seems just a stones throw to the north and Bidean and the Three Sisters form the Southern back drop.
There is also the chance to tick off two more Munros, Sgurr Nam Fiannaidh (967m) at the western end, and Meall Dearg (953m) to the east.
