Climbing An Teallach

Climbing An Teallach

Climbing An Teallach. An Teallach lies to the southwest of Dundonnell and overlooks Little Loch Broom, in an area often nicknamed the “great wilderness”. An Teallach means ‘The Anvil’ or ‘The Forge’ in Scottish Gaelic; although most scholars claim the latter is most correct as the mountain’s name refers more to the colour of the terrain in certain lighting conditions, rather than shape.

This mountain is perhaps the most impressive in Britain, and gives a day of drama and views that will live in the memory forever. The full traverse is a magnificent scramble, whilst the two Munros can be reached by an easier there-and-back route.

How to pronounce An Teallach?

The mountain is mostly made of Torridonian sandstone. An Teallach has terraced sides riven with steep gullies and a sharp rocky summit crest at Sgùrr Fiona. The steepest section, known as Corrag Bhuidhe, rises above Loch Toll an Lochain. Corrag Bhuidhe’s most spectacular feature is an overhanging pinnacle known as Lord Berkeley’s Seat.
