Bealach Druim Uachdair

Pass of Drumochter is a mountain pass at an elevation of 460m (1,509ft) above the sea level, located in the Scottish Highlands.

The pass is located between the northern and southern central Scottish Highlands. It’s traversed by the A9 road. The road is asphalted and was an old military road. It was rebuilt in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

This road is usually open all year, but it can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. In winter can be subject to severe weather conditions. There are routine winter patrols from November to March. The road is reinforced by the narrowness of the glen and the very steep slopes of containing hills.
