Brothers Ridge - Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The eastern neighbours of the Five Sisters are the three Munros Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg, Saileag and Aonach Meadhoin, often collectively known as the Brothers of Kintail. They give a very fine ridgewalk themselves, and are in no way overshadowed by their more famous siblings.


Steep ascent to and from the ridge, but a clear path leads along the ridge.

Public Transport

Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness on A87 (request stop at drivers discretion).


Glen Shiel car park off A87 (T) just east of clearing between two sections of forest. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
