Details for Chno Dearg

Chno Dearg is situated to the east of Loch Treig in the high ground between the loch and Strath Ossian. It is not regarded as a particularly striking hill, being described in the SMCs Munro guide as “a rounded and featureless hill”, its convex slopes giving a monotonous climb to the summit. The neighbouring Munro of Stob Coire Sgriodain is usually climbed with which Chno Dearg and considered a more exciting hill even though it is 70 metres lower in altitude.

Chno Dearg is usually climbed from the hamlet of Fersit (NN350784); as a rule the adjacent Munro of Stob Coire Sgriodain is also included in the ascent. The route from Fersit offers a natural round of Coire an Lochain, taking in both Munros, with a brief detour to take in the “top” of Meall Garbh. However the proximity of the West Highland Railway in the area offers walkers the alternative of starting from Corrour railway station and climbing Beinn na Lap first and then continuing north over Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain to finish at Tulloch railway station to catch the evening train

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Chno Dearg is Thirty-Four
