Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair
|Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair is a remote peak with boggy approaches. The mountain is steep sided with its summit in the form of a triangular pyramid. |
It is linked to Sgurr Ban by its N ridge and from the col on this ridge, there are easy slopes to the path from Loch a' Bhraoin. It is also connected to Beinn Tarsuinn via Meal Garbh on its S ridge.
From Beinn Tarsuinn easy slopes lead to the path to Incheril at the E tip of Loch Fada. A third ridge leads SE to craggy Sgurr Dubh which form the E slopes of Coire Mhic Fhearchair.
|Mullach Fraoch-choire and A' Chralaig form the head-wall of Coire na Cralaig which lies at the W end of Gleann na Ciche (SW of Glen Affric). |
Mullach Fraoch-choire is linked to A'Chralaig to the S by a narrow twisting ridge. The summit ridge of Mullach Fraoch-choire is narrow and rocky with the crags mostly to the E, but the W slopes also have some crags and some stony slopes. A descent is possible from the col linking to Stob Coire na Cralaig into Coire Odhar to reach An Caorann Mor below.
The summit ridge continues NNW giving rise to a short NNE ridge, then a longer NE ridge. From the summit a further ridge splits to give NE and ENE ridges. Between the two NE ridges lies Fraoch-choire (heather corrie) for which the peak is named.
Mullach na Dheiragain
|Mullach na Dheiragain is the highest peak in the hills that form the E side of Gleann Sithidh. This long ridge is continuous with the NE ridge of Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan. |
The W slopes of this long ridge are steep and rocky, but an ascent is possible via the path in Gleann Sithidh from Iron Lodge.
Mullach na Dheiragain is a compact rocky top with a short ridge N to Mullach Sithidh (974m), a narrow ridge to the E and a longer ridge to the SSW leading to Carn na Con Dhu then on to Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan
Mullach nan Coirean
|Mullach nan Coirean is the most westerly of the Mamores, connected to its nearest neighbour Stob Ban by its 4.5km winding ESE ridge via an un-named top (917m). |
A WSW ridge connects to Meall a Chaorainn (910m). From its N slopes arise two ridges, a long N ridge and a shorter NW ridge. The NW ridge leads to an access track in Coire Deirg leading down to Glen Nevis. The other normal access route is from Stob Ban.
