Sgurr na Ciche: 3 Munros from Loch Arkaig
This epic mountain walk takes in three remote and exceptionally rugged Munros. The effort is well worthwhile as the scenery is magnificent and Sgurr na Ciche is one of the most shapely summits in Scotland.
Extremely boggy terrain lower down and very complex rocky terrain on the higher ridges makes this a long and exhausting outing. Not a route to be underestimated.
No public transport along Loch Arkaig road.
Car park at end of public road up Loch Arkaig.
