The Area

Remote countryside is suddenly accessible from Bridge of Orchy station as many a Munroist will testify. The station rests at the foot of the famous Beinn Dorain, which was immortalised in verse by the Gaelic bard Duncan Ban MacIntyre (whose dwellinghouse sadly lies in ruins just a few miles away). There are well over 35 Munros within a short drive of the Sleeper, although its not recommended to try too many on the same day !

Other nearby attractions include the White Corries Ski Centre where the ski season usually runs from Christmas to Easter.

Nearby there are over 90 recorded climbs, more than enough to keep even the most enthusiastic climber happy.
