Thanks to Mark de Saint-Rat for adding this peak.
The Aonach Eagach (the "notched ridge") rises above the north side of Glen Coe between Clachaig Inn and the Pass of Glencoe. It is rather narrow and tricky having several towers along its length. A walk of the ridge can take in the two Munros of Sgorr nam Fiannaidh ("peak of the Fian warriors", 3172 feet) and Meall Dearg ("red hill", 3126 feet). The view from the A82 motor route fails to disclose the difficulties of the walk. However by walking up the south side of Glen Coe you can look across the glen and appreciate the difficulties of the "notched ridge". If you have any concerns about the difficulties,you may allay them by bringing a rope.
Thanks to Mark de Saint-Rat for this description.
