Details for A'Mharconaich

A'Mharconaich lies south west of Dalwhinnie and north west of the Pass of Drumochter. It has a flat plateau with a summit cairn standing on the north eastern end. Perhaps the best feature of the hill is it's steep eastern face that forms a high corrie just beneath the summit point. A'Mharconaich has a elongated ridge that runs from the south west - north east with the northeastern end dropping down to the Balsporran Cottages by the A9 road. To the south east the munro Beinn Udlamain is connected via a high col.

Access it usually via A'Mharconaich's north eastern ridge from Balsporran Cottages. Alternatively the hill can be combined with Beinn Udlamain and accessed from there.
