A great ridge with a beautiful shape and easily accessed from East or West.

Situated just North of Loch Tay, Tarmachan Ridge comprises four summits, one a Munro, with some interesting walking between.

Great viewing potential, South to Loch Tay with classically jaggy peaks all around, well worth a visit.

       Creag na Caillich 916m

Total ascent 823m

I've graded this event as Difficult as the ridge has a short narrow section and some down scrambling off top no.2 but there is a bypass for the scramble and I'm confident that this event would suit those who have been out with us on Mountain Walks before.
