Sgurr Gaorsaic, from Morvich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr Gaorsaic is a remote Corbett, rather overshadowed by grander mountains all around. This route gives the most convenient approach for a day-walk, crossing the dramatic Bealach na Sgairne Pass before descending to the foot of the hill. Despite its own lack of character, the mountainous surroundings make for an enjoyable outing.


Good paths to the Bealach an Sgairne and beyond. The path becomes briefly boggy near Loch a' Bhealaich; the ascent to Sgurr Gaorsaic itself is pathless hillside.

Public Transport

None to start. Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness on A87. Ask to get off at Allt a'chruinn, 2km from Morvich.
