This long circular walk climbs three munros on the Ardverikie Estate, better known as Glenbogle on Monarch of the Glen. Much of the walk is either on poor paths or no path. Navigation should not be a problem in good weather but be prepared to navigate across open ground in poor visibility. Starting from the southern end of Loch Laggan it follows estate tracks as far as Lochan na h-Earba where you will be surprised by a beautiful sandy beach below the steep crags of the Ardverikie Wall favoured by climbers. A stalker`s path leads beyond the lochan before a steep climb over pathless grassy slopes leads to the first munro, Beinn a` Chlachair. A walk along a broad ridge followed by a bit of a steep scramble leads down to the bealach below the second peak. A 300 metre ascent on a grass and stone covered ridge leads to the second munro, Geal Charn, a common name for munros around here. A steep descent and a shorter, just 100 metres, but steeper ascent takes you to the third and smallest munro of the walk, Creag Pitridh. The smallest peak has possibly the best views looking down on five lochs and north to Creag Meagaidh. A long descent over grassy slopes rejoins the outward route with a good path back to the car park.
