Caisteal Abhail

Caisteal Abhail is a mountain on the isle of Arran in Ayrshire, Scotland.

The mountain forms the main part of a view known as ‘The Sleeping Warrior’ due to its resemblance to the profile of a recumbent figure. A deep gash on the eastern ridge is known as Ceum na Caillich (also known as the ‘Witch’s Step’.

The mountain is most frequently accessed from North Glenn Sannox, where there is a car park on the A841 road about 3 km west of Sannox. This starting point gives you a choice of the northern, northwestern or eastern ridges.
