Step into the wilderness of Craig
The peaks to the south of Stratchcarron shelter some of the grandest, most remote scenery in the Highlands. Start here for routes up the Munros of Sgurr Choinich (the mossy peak) and Sgurr a Chaorachain (peak of the place of rowan berries), or Moruisg (the big water). More remote still is Maoile Lunndaidh (the bare hill of the wet place) – as their names suggest, some of these mountains are rather boggy.
There's also a superb route along the lower ridge of Sgurr na Feartaig (peak of the sea pink), with stunning views.
There are toilets and places to eat in Achnasheen and Lochcarron.
