Sgurr Mhic Bharraich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr 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.

Public Transport
