Sgor Mor circular, from the Linn of Dee

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Viewed in isolation, Sgor Mor would be an unassuming hill - a rounded heather moorland crowned by several summits. However, its position on the southern fringe of the Cairngorms makes it one of the finest viewpoints for looking in towards this great range, and combined with the always magnificent pinewoods it makes for a grand days walking.


Good going underfoot on the plateau between the summits, and on the path on the return leg. The initial climb, however, is through deep heather, and the descent crosses some extensive boggy areas.
