Sgurr Mor and Sgurr an Fhuarain, Loch Arkaig
Sgurr Mor, a rocky and steep peak between Loch Quoich and lonely Glen Kingie, must rank amongst the remotest Munros. Unless you have a kayak, the usual approach is from Glendessary to the south, involving a pass to Glen Kingie just to reach the foot of the mountain. The Corbett Sgurr an Fhuarain is easily included in the walk.
Very rough and remote walking. Much of the route is pathless, some parts steep and others are boggy; there are no easy escape routes.
Car park at end of public road up Loch Arkaig.
