The Sgurr of Eigg

Climb to the top of the incredible and unique Sgurr of Eigg for truly fantastic views over the other Small Isles and across to Skye and Ardnamurchan. The route is fairly straightforward given the formidale appearance of the Sgurr, but it does involve a steep climb and very simply rocky scrambling along the ridge - care is needed.

Terrain

Steep path, very boggy in parts. The ridge is broad but involves crossing rocky terrain.

Public Transport

Ferry to Eigg pier from Mallaig, limited summer service from Arisaig.

Start

Eigg ferry pier. Map and directions.
