Creag Mhor [Cairngorms]
Creag Mhor is a broad elongated top on a high plateau. It runs from the Fords of Avon 7.5km NE to the Water of Caiplich, with the summit towards the SW. It has a few rock outcrops, but is otherwise of easy slopes.

This is remote mountain in moorland terrain and care must be taken with navigation. Can be climbed along with its nearest neighbour, Bynack More .

Creag nan Gabhar
Creag nan Gabhar lies south of Braemar, between Glen Clunie and Glen Callater. It is an elongated hill running S from the crags of Sron Dubh, overlooking Auchallater, over Sron nan Gabhar to Creag nan Gabhar then turning WSW to terminate in steep stony slopes.

Two paths lead onto the summit ridge, the first at the northern end of Glen Callater leads onto Sron Dubh, the second runs from Baddoch in Glen Clunie over the Bealach Buidhe to Glen Callater, passing just S of the summit.

Creag Rainich
Creag Rainich is a mountain of varied terrain. The route from the A832 to Loch a' Bhraoin leads you up easy slopes with no signs of crags, but the W and some N slopes are steep and rocky making for more challenging ascents.

Creag Rainich consists of a ridge running N-S with very steep W slopes down to Loch an Nid. The summit rises close to the middle of this ridge. There are two other ridges running ENE and parallel to each other. The shorter runs from the summit and the longer from the subsidiary top, Meall Dubh (748m), to terminate in Meall an t-Sithe overlooking the road.

This longer ridge is the normal ascent route.

Creag Uchdag
The N slopes of Creag Uchdag rise gently from the shores of Loch Tay to the summit of Meall nan Oighreag (823m). From here a broad ridge runs S to Creag Uchdag were it turns SE and descends to Creag Tharsuinn overlooking InverGeldie in Glen Lednock. The SW slopes fall steeply to the Loch Lednock Reservoir.

An ascent is possible from the N on easy slopes or from the S on more complex terrain. There are many steep and or craggy slopes so careful navigation is required.

Creagan na Beinne
Creagan na Beinne is the most W top of the hill complex forming the N slopes of Glen Almond. Creagan na Beinne is elongated N-S with its N slopes curving W over Beinn Bhreac to Loch Tay and its S slopes curving E to Lechrea Hill in Glen Almond.

It's W slopes fall steeply to Gleann a' Chilleine where a path runs from Loch Tay to Glen Almond making this hill easily accessible from the N or the S.

The usual ascents are from Ardtalnaig via the stalkers path onto Beinn Bhreac or from Dunan on the southern slopes of Dunan Hill

Cruach Innse
Cruach Innse and its smaller neighbour Sgurr Innse (809m) lie 2km apart separated by a col (593m) and are naturally climbed together. They are located on the S side of Glen Spean.

Cruach Innse is a conical hill compressed SW to NE. It is a steep sided mountain with rocky outcrops on the SE and S slopes. Sgurr Innse is the rockier of the two and requires some minor scrambling to reach the top.

Cul Beag
Cul Beag and Cul Mor are two impressive rocky hills in in the Inverpolly Nature Reserve N of Ullapool. They can be climbed together to give a full day in the hills but this will involve an un-bridged river crossing.

Both these hills have bands of weathered sandstone cliffs which should be avoided, on Cul Beag, the cliffs are primarily on the N and W slopes.

Cul Beag can be ascended from the E via the stalkers path that leads onto Creag Dubh, or from the S via the road to Stac Pollaidh.

Cul Mor
Cul Mor and Cul Beag are two impressive rocky hills in the Inverpolly Nature Reserve N of Ullapool. They can be climbed together to give a full day in the hills but this will involve an un-bridged river crossing.

Cul Mor has bands of weathered sandstone cliffs, which are difficult to climb, on most slopes and should be avoided, thus limiting the possible ascent routes. Moreover, Cul Mor is largely surrounded by lochans and rivers to the N, W and S and the only easy approach is from the A835 to the E where a stalkers path ascends its east ridge to Meallan Diomhain. This ridge can be followed to the summit.

Culardoch and Carn Liath lie either side of the Bealach Dearg and are usually climbed together.

The walk in is quite long, which adds to the logic of bagging both hills in a single expedition.

Culardoch is a much simpler hill, than Carn Liath, being a triangular pyramid with a track approaching it from the W and paths on its E and S slopes.
