Sgurr an Airgid
Sgurr an Airgid may seem like the lowly neighbour amongst the peaks of Kintail, but don't be mistaken. Despite its lower height, it offers a relatively straightforward hillwalk revealing some of the area's most magnificent views. An excellent introduction to the higher mountains of the area.
Good zig-zag path up to ridge, then some boggy sections before final climb. Pathless detours suggested for best viewpoints near the summit.
Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness on A87 (request stop at drivers discretion).
Clachan Duich burial ground car park.
