Lurg Mhòr is one of the remotest of all Munros. It lacks the grandeur of neighbouring Bidean a' Choire Sheasgaich but nonetheless enjoys a wild atmosphere, and looks grand when seen from the east.

Detailed route description and map

Lurg Mhòr and Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich, from Attadale via Bendronaig Lodge

Other routes and challenges

All approaches to this pair of Munros are extremely long. One variation is to start from Craig in Strathcarron, heading over the Bealach Bhearnais, traversing Beinn Tharsuinn and then tackling the scramble up Bidean a' Choire Sheasgaich. A return the same way makes this a truly epic outing.

The eastern side of Lurg Mhòr is made even more remote by Loch Monar. The east ridge up over Meall Mòr from Pait Lodge involves some airy, tricky scrambling on slabs.
