Carn na Saobhaidhe
Carn na Saobhaidhe is a remote and indistinct summit on the high Monadhliath Plateau. The surounding terrain is boggy with peat hags.

Because of the featureless surroundings please be sure you are equipped to navigate properly.

Cir Mhor
Arran's 4 Corbetts are sufficiently close to one another to be climbed together, but Goatfell is popular as a single peak and is described separately.

The three remaining peaks lie on a long winding ridge that starts with Beinn Nuis (792m) then goes N to Beinn Tarsuinn , Cir Mhor and finally Caisteal Abhail .

Cir Mhor is a more compact hill with three ridges, NNW to Caisteal Abhail, WSW to join the A Chir ridge of Beinn Tarsuinn and E to a bealach (The saddle). All three ridges are well served by paths, but the descent from Cir Mhor to the saddle is very steep and should not be attempted.

Cnoc Coinnich
Cnoc Coinnich was resurveyed in May of 2016 and found to be 2.5m higher than previously surveyed. This means it is no longer one of the highest Grahams but a Corbett.

Cnoc Coinnich is situated in the Ardgoil peninsula between Loch Goil to the W and Loch Long to the E.

It lies to the S of the Corbetts Ben Donich and The Brack, and all three could be climbed in one outing.

Forestry tracks from Lochgoilhead to the W provide the nearest access.

Conachcraig has three tops, the summit in the S, a unnamed mid top (850m) and Caisteal na Caillich (862m) in the N. In addition, a single ridge runs E to Carn an Daimh (617m) and a few rocky outcrops occur on the N slopes of this ridge.

Conachcraig is otherwise a rounded hill with mostly easy slopes. It can be ascended from the E via the ridge or from the S via the track to Lochnagar .

Corryhabbie Hill
Corryhabbie Hill lies on a ridge that runs from Carn an t-Suidhe (734m) in Glen Livet N to Muckle Lapprach (730m) where the ridge turns E to Corryhabbie Hill and continues NE with Morton's Way (a hill track) on its crest.

Whilst a vehicle track from the A941 in the NE does lead to the summit the shortest approach is from the N on the folded NW slopes.

Corserine is a large spreading mountain in the middle of a long ridge which runs from Coran of Portmark (623m) in the N to Little Millyea (578m) in the S and can be climbed as part of the traverse of this 13km long ridge.

Corserine lies at the intersection of five ridges. The N ridge which leads over Carlin's Cairn, Goat craigs and Meaul to Coran of Portmark has steep craggy sections on its E slopes. The S ridge known as "Rhinns of Kells" which runs over the tops, Millfire, Milldown and Meikle Millyea to Little Millyea is the normal access from the S. The S ridge is narrow and very craggy to the E.

A single broad W ridge leads over Meikle Craigtarson to the forested Little Craigtarson where a forest track gives access. Finally, the E ridge forks, the NNE branch terminating at Craignelder forms a deep corrie to its W. The ESE branch to North Gairy Top, although craggy, is the normal access from the E.

Cranstackie and Beinn Spionnaidh are neighbouring hills connected by a col (565m) so they are always climbed together.

The closest access is from the A838 at Carbreck to the NW where a track leads to the slopes below the col. An ascent is also possible from the A838 at the head of Loch Eriboll to the SE but this route up gentler slopes shows nothing of the more rugged nature of these hills .

Both hills have scattered rock outcrops and crags but these are easily avoided.

Creach Bheinn [Benderloch]
Creach Bheinn is a compact rocky hill, but it is not difficult to find a route through and over the rocky outcrops without the need for scrambling.

It can be ascended from Druimavuic, to the N, via the NW ridge over Meall nan Caorach or through Coire Buidhe from the bealach connecting to Beinn Sgulaird .

Creach Bheinn [Morven]
Creach Bheinn and its smaller neighbour Fuar Bheinn are the two highest tops on a horse-shoe ridge around Glen Glamadale.

Whilst it is possible to descend from the ridge at Maol Odhar at the head of the Glen, you will miss the views over Loch Linnhe seen from Meall nan Each, and this should be considered an emergency descent only.

Whilst there are many granite outcrops, particularly on the eastern slopes, no scrambling should be required in a circuit of the glen.

Creag Mac Ranaich
Creag Mac Ranaich is a craggy hill overlooking Glen Ogle which would make for the shortest approach. However paths/tracks approach the peak from Glen Kendrum to the SE and Ledcharrie to the NW.

The longer route from Ledcharrie is the preferred approach as it approaches the crag free N ridge.
