Beinn Sgulaird

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Sgulaird is a solitary Munro, rising steeply above upper Loch Creran. The upper slopes are rocky but the summit is best known as a fantastic viewpoint. On a clear day the 360 degree panorama of mountains, lochs, sea and islands is one of the finest in Scotland.

Terrain

Mostly good going lower down on the ridge. The traverse between the three summits is very rocky and rugged, with some boulders and the odd bit of very straightforward scrambling.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Layby just north of Druimavuic. Map and directions.
