Loch Ericht to Loch Laggan

The majority of these munros are situated along the classic through route from Dalwhinnie to Corrour. This route makes an excellent backpacking trip using Culra bothy or Loch Ossian Hostel. If you’ve got savings in the bank however, treat yourself to a stay at Loch Ossian Chapel which has been converted by a millionaire Dutchman and is situated next to his extravagant residence ( complete with turf roofed sauna) at the east end of Loch Ossian. The Chapel has been papered with old newspaper articles to keep residents amused. This through route also makes a great cross country ski expedition in winter. For day trips a bicycle greatly aids access from Dalwhinnie or Corrour. Watch out for the horses at Loch Pattack. In the days of old rusty cars they would eat loose bits of bodywork from parked cars.

There are some classic ridges running up to Ben alder and Beinn Eibhinn from Culra covered in Blaeberries in the late summer. These munros can be linked in many different ways to make some great days out and because of their central location the views encompass Cairngorms to the western islands.

The three munros in the north of this area are more accessible from Moy bridge by West Loch Lagan or from the east via Ardverikie Estate ( TV Glen Bogle country) and again a bicycle helps on good tracks. Ardverikie was on the original short list for Royal residences but Queen Victoria chose Balmoral in the end.

Also in this area just to the south of Loch lagan are a couple of small hills with excellent climbing opportunities. The tracks from Ardverikie go all the way to Pattack and onto Dalwhinnie and make for some good through cycling routs with various waterfalls and other sights along the way. Maps show a bothy at Blackburn of Pattack but unfortunately this wooden building was burned to the ground whilst being used by stalkers.
