The Pass of Corryarrick

The Pass of Corryarrick, also spelt Corrieyairack, is found south east of Fort Augustus, off the A86 at Laggan. It is part of General George Wade's military road which linked Fort Augustus with Ruthven Barracks in Badenoch. The road was maintained as the highest public road in Britain for a century as it rises to a height of 769m (2500ft).

The road is no longer accessible by vehicles but is a popular walk and a challenging mountain bike route.

This illustration from Herbert Byng Hall's book "Highland Sports and Highland Quarters" shows two men from a hunting party walking in the Pass of Corryarrick
