    Routes near Morar

    I'm after a short route below 6m around Morar. Anything in the ranges north or south of the Loch would be good. Cheers.

    Are you on Strava? You can go on, search for activity in an area and it will give you some ideas.

    Here's a link to a run around a loch by Loch from Morar by Graham Kirby of Fife AC.

    Never done any running around Morar but know the area so I'm sure you'll work something out from the map, can be quite rough country.


    A good wee hill to do not too far from Morar is Rois Bheinn. Steve Fallon has a route coming in right at 6m, couple of other Corbetts as a bonus!

    Another way to find where to possibly run is to use the Strava heat map, quickly see what routes might be popular.

    This link should show some routes around Morar.

    The heat map is interesting, it picks up a track winding through the south range that could be used to get to Sidhean Mor which is a Marilyn. There is also another Marilyn called Sgurr na Dubh Creighe near the village of Morar. Unfortunately any sort of Marilyn round will be too many miles. We're staying in a lodge house thing at NM 665914 which is overlooked by Creag Mhor, a lump of no particular status being overshadowed by larger lumps, but it's still a very sharp 1000' climb after a bog bash coming in at 4m total.
