    I've done the ridge and would say it's one of the best walking / climbing experiences I've ever had.
    I had a great day in June with freaky hot weather in 2007. The only downside was a large group was
    doing it the same day. Great views over the fisherfield wilderness to be had

    I haven't done the ridge yet, just the 2 main peaks but I will have to do the complete traverse one day on one holiday when I am up there again.
    It should be interesting.

    If the ridge is half as good as it looks it will be breathtaking.

Details for: An Teallach

An Teallach is one of Scotland’s most impressive mountain ranges with ten distinct summits over 3,000 feet / 914.4 m (two Munros and eight tops) include Lord Berkeley's Seat where alot of the difficulties lie if climbing this complex mountain. The range rises due south of the head of Little Loch Broom and is usually climbed from Dundonnell. The 5km long ridge is indented in places and throws out 3 spurs which enclose 2 magnificent corries, one of which, Toll an Lochain on the is one of the most magnificent corries in Scotland, it's loch is surrounded by spectacular pinnacles which can be compared in splendour with Coire Mhic Fhearchair on the north-western flanks of Beinn Eighe - Ruadh-stac Mor in Torridon.

The best view of the whole of the An Teallach range is obtained from the A832 road know as the 'Road of Desolation' ( NH138792 ) , and when viewed on a clear sunny morning the excellent sandstone is at it's best, including the detail of the peaks surrounding Toll an Lochain.

The traverse of the ridge in winter is more demanding than that of the Aonach Eagach or Liathach owing to the remoteness of the mountain with few daylight hours. There is a well maintained bothy GR NH065809 giving easy access to Sail Liath (954m) and then onto the ridge after an overnight stay this is also useful for Letterewe & Fisherfield.
