Carn Eige [Carn Eighe]

Height:1183 m
3881 ft
Carn Eige is one of the higher mountains in Scotland, the 12th highest in fact, and is also the highest mountain in this area. This mountain lies in the central area of the Glen Affric region. Access is reasonable in a day, but you also have Mam Sodhail just to the South and Beinn Fhionnlaidh to the North. Beinn Fhionnlaidh in particular is not very accessible and the only way to reach it is via Carn Eighe. So if you want to one day climb all the Munros you really have to do all three at the same time. Otherwise, maybe just climb Mam Sodhail and Carn Eighe, leaving Beinn Fhionnlaidh to the die-hards.
