Sgurr Coire Choinnichean, from Inverie

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr Coire Choinnichean is the fine peak that rises dramatically behind Inverie, and is well seen from the ferry approaching from Mallaig. It gives a fairly short hillwalk by Knoydart standards, a steep ascent with a very fine and airy (but easy) ridge and superlative views.


Hillpath for much of ascent, unclear in one or two places. Exposed ridge then long, mostly grassy descent.
