The Sgurr Ghiubhsachain round

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr Ghiubhsachan is a magnificently rugged and rocky peak, well seen in the classic view down Glen Shiel from Glenfinnan. This route takes in the two additional Corbetts of Druim Tarsuinn and Sgurr Croabh a' Chaorain to make a strenuous but very fine challenging hillwalk.

Terrain

The hill ridges are very rugged and rocky, with careful route-finding needed in a couple of places. Good track then boggy path for approach; river crossing in the Cona Glen may be impassable in spate.

Public Transport

None to start - Bus/train to Glenfinnan 3km from start.

Start

Callop Forestry car park. Map and directions.
