Gairich gives a fairly easy day out for Munro baggers; this isolated summit is a superb viewpoint. NOTE: Road to Kinloch Hourn currently closed at Loch Quoich Dam until mid 2019 - no vehicular access to start of this route.


Fairly straightforward mountain walk with a path throughout; very boggy in parts. There is a short and very easy section of scrambling shortly before the summit.
