The fine peak of Sgùrr na h-Eachainne rises dramatically on the north side of the Corran narrows, and is a familiar sight for travellers along the A82 to Fort William. Further along the ridge is the less impressive main summit of Druim na Sgriodain. The ascent of both gives a steep and rugged hillwalk with spectacular views.

Terrain

Pathless on the hills, steep and rough going. The last part of the descent requires a burn crossing and then an especially steep descent to the mast and requires care, especially in the wet.

Public Transport

Corran Ferry to start; the south side is reached by good bus links.

Start

Parking opposite North Corran church, near Corran Ferry. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.

Hillwalking in Winter

All route descriptions and difficulties given here are for summer conditions.
