Details for Creag Leacach

Creag Leacach is a fine sharp peak that sits on the end of a winding ridge to the south west of the munro Glas Maol. It has scree slopes that drop steeply to the west into Coire Bhathaich (corrie of the shelter). Creag Leacach is protected by steep craggy slopes in all directions except for the linking ridge to Glas Maol which is the usual route of choice following a small drystone wall which defines the route between the two munros. On the west side of Creag Leacach is the highest road in scotland the A93 that reaches 670 metres where a path leads to a col between Meall Gorm (759 metres) and the south-western top (943 metres) of Creag Leacach which acts as an alternative ascent route.
