Sguman Coinntich and Faochaig

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sguman Coinnich is a shapely summit above the head of Loch Long and is a very fine viewpoint. Its combination with its more remote neighbour, Faochaig, makes a fairly long and rewarding hillwalk with a return down beautiful Glen Elchaig.


Rough hillwalking, pathless for much of the way though there are stalkers paths lower down. Return down Glen Elchaig has excellent track.
