Detailed route description and map

Sgùrr a’ Choire-bheithe from Barrisdale Bay

Other routes and challenges

The mountain involves a great deal of walking whichever approach is used. The route given above is much the easiest, but requires the long walk in to Barrisdale Bay, probably with a camp or stay in the both either before or after the ascent. The very long and extremely rugged east ridge on the shores of Loch Quoich would make a truly epic walk.
