The Aonach Eagach (Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [ˈɯːnəx ˈekəx], 'notched ridge') is a rocky ridge lying to the north of Glen Coe in the Scottish Highlands, boasting two Munro summits. It is sometimes known by the somewhat tongue-in-cheek name "Aggy Ridge".

In length the full ridge continues for 10 km from the Pap of Glencoe at the west to the eastern end at the Devil's Staircase. The central section, some 2 km in length, is very rocky and the route along it requires scrambling ability. The slopes to each side are extremely dangerous, with steep grass and scree slopes hiding even steeper slopes which end in cliffs on both north and south sides of the ridge. For safety, climbers are strongly advised not to attempt descent of these slopes, but rather to continue along the ridge or reverse their path back along the ridge.
