Parallel Roads Glen Roy from Creag Dhubh

Parallel Roads, Glen Roy, from Creag Dhubh.

Creag Dhubh is a nice walk from Bohenie near Roy Bridge. One of the highlights is the view over to the glacial feature of the Parallel Roads. It's amazing to think that glaciers blocked these valleys only 10,000 years ago, creating three distinct shorelines. A real reminder that we are only passing through this wonderful landscape for a very short time!

We previously climbed Creag Dhubh from the south at Murlaggan which made for a very steep approach. The route from Bohenie is certainly a better choice, providing an easy angled ridge. Good views from the summit over the Grey Corries and Aonach Mor.
