Goatfell can also be approached via a steep scramble up the Cioch na h-Oighe ridge, continuing via Mullach Buidhe and North Goatfell; the Sannox Horseshoe route describes this as far as North Goatfell.

Another challenging option is a complete horseshoe around Glen Rosa, beginning with Goatfell and continuing over Cir Mhòr and Beinn Tarsuinn; again the Sannox Horseshoe route describes the section from North Goatfell over to Cir Mhor.
