Sgor Gaoith, from Glen Feshie

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgor Gaoith gives a superb, fairly short hillwalk when approached from Glen Feshie. The ascent passes through some magnificent pinewoods before climbing the bare upper slopes to reach a vast plateau. The summit is extremely dramatic perched on the very edge of the vast broken crags that plunge down to Loch Einich; the views are superb.

Terrain

Excellent constructed approach path; terrain higher up is mostly fairly easy going on short moss. Some boulders on the Geal Charn ridge.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

By Allt Ruadh bridge, east side of Glen Feshie. Map and directions.
