Geo-Trips :: A climb up Creag Pitridh

Ardverikie Forest

A walk from Moy, Thu, 18 Sep 2003 by Nigel Brown

Creag Pitridh is the lowest of the three Munros of the Ardverikie Forest and lies to the side of neighbouring Geal Charn. It was a rather dull day when I left my car in the layby at the start of the track to Luiblea. I soon left the Luiblea track for another which heads for the hills, and after 5km of easy walking arrived at the western end of distictive Lochan na h-Earba. Here a well-made stalker's path heads east uphill, following the Allt Coire Pitridh. After another couple of kilometers Creag Pitridh came into view to the north west, and it was an easy climb up grass slopes to the pointed summit and cairn.
