Sgùrr Mhic Bharraich is the final summit of the great range of mountains on the south side of Glen Shiel. This pathless Corbett gives a short day and an escape from the busier mountains nearby, as well as excellent views.


Excellent old hill-path as far as the bealach, but the mountain itself is otherwise pathless. A little boggy and rough in places.
