An Gearanach


An Gearanach is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland. It is situated in the Mamores range, 5.5 kilometres from Kinlochleven, and has an elevation of 982 metres.

This is a mountain with a stunning ridge that is often walked as part of the longer round named "The Ring of Steall". The other Munros included on this route are: Stob Coire a' Chairn, Am Bodach and Sgurr a'Mhaim. There is a clear path almost all the way through this hike, with some scrambling sections. There is parking available at the end of the road up Glen Nevis.

This is a long and strenuous but rewarding walk, with some stunning views from the summit.

Before you go

  • This is a wild and remote place so make sure you are fully prepared for your visit.

    This means wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear for the the conditions, having a compass, map of the area and the knowledge to use these.

    You should also take some food, plenty of water, a first aid kit with an emergency whistle, a head torch and a mobile phone. You should also have spare warm and waterproof clothing with you and a survival bag should you need to await rescue for an emergency situation on the mountain.

    Always tell someone details of your route and give an indication of the time you should be expected back.
