Sgor Gaoith, from Glen Feshie
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.
Excellent constructed approach path; terrain higher up is mostly fairly easy going on short moss, but difficult navigation in poor visibility. Some boulders on the Geal Charn ridge, which is pathless.
None to start.
By Allt Ruadh bridge, east side of Glen Feshie.
