Corrag Bhuidhe Pinnacles, An Teallach

An Teallach is celebrated as perhaps the British mainland’s finest mountain (though Liathach, Beinn Eighe, Ben Nevis, Foinaven and others might take issue with that). The mountain has two Munro summits; Bidean a’ Ghlas Thuill and Sgurr Fiona, the former being the higher by a couple of metres but the latter being the finer, sharper peak in close proximity to the Corrag Bhuidhe pinnacles, the roughest and toughest section of the An Teallach ridge and corrie Toll an Lochain skyline. The pinnacles offer fine, exposed scrambling on ancient Torridonian sandstone. Hidden from view here between the last pinnacle and Sgurr Fiona is the wonderful Lord Berkeley’s Seat; a charismatic airy view point and seat, but take care.
