Mullach Fraoch-choire lies on the west end of Loch Cluanie and Glen Affric and is a peak very much hidden set back nearly 5km from Loch Cluanie. It's one of the fines peaks in the Five Sisters of Kintail formed by the meeting of three ridges giving a fairly pointed appearance rising high at the end of a 8km long ridge. The southern ridge is fairly narrow leading to the summit point which is marked with a substantial cairn and windbreak. The southern ridge from Mullach Fraoch-choire leads to Stob Coire nan Craliag (1008m) which then connects to A'Chralaig which is also of munro status.

Usual access is from the southern ridge connecting to A'Chralaig where the approach ridge is broken into a series of exposed pinnacles which can be a little daunting. A'Chralaig is nearly alway climbed on the same days outing.

Mullach Fraoch-choire has fine views over the wilds of Glen Affric on the north & of the Five Sisters of Kintail ridge on the west.
