The Sgurr Ghiubhsachain round
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.
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.
None to start - Bus/train to Glenfinnan 3km from start.
Callop Forestry car park.
