Sgòr na h-Ulaidh is the forgotten Munro amongst the Glencoe peaks, being out of sight for most of the road through the glen. Combined with the Corbett Meall na Lighiche, it gives a day with superb views - but with a very steep ascent.


There is a good deal of very steep, pathless going. The ascent up to Sgòr na h-Ulaidh from the bealach is exceptionally steep on grass and rocks and requires careful route finding - avoid descending this way.

Public Transport

Citilink buses along Glen Coe (request stops at drivers discretion).


Park just east of bridge over the Allt Gleann Leac na Muidhe on the A82. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
