Sgurr an Utha

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr na Utha is a rather sprawling but extremely rocky mountain to the northwest of Glenfinnan. It gives a fairly short hillwalk; the summit offers superb views of the nearby mountains and along the length of lonely Loch Beoraid.


Good track for the initial part of the ascent, then pathless walking on rocky, boggy and complex ground; navigation could be trick in mist.

Public Transport

Bus services run along the A830; Glenfinnan (2.5km) has a train station.


Drochaid Allt an Utha, A830. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
