Glen Catacol runs inland from Catacol Bay with Abhainn Mr running along its valley floor. It is a spectacularly lovely valley with Meall nan Leac Sleamhuin on its western side and the crags of Creag na h-Iolaire on the east.
After just over a mile the valley splits with Glen Catacol continuing southwards towards Loch Tanna, while Gleann Diomhan forks off to the southeast before sweeping around Beinn Bhreac to meet Gleann Easan Biorach.
