Detailed route description and map

Sgùrr nan Conbhairean from Loch Cluanie

Other routes and challenges

An ascent of Sàil Chaorainn on its own could be made by approaching up Glen Doe from the A887, and tackling the An Reithe ridge.

The Sgùrr nan Conbhairean group is linked to the A' Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-choire ridge by the Bealach Choire a' Chaitt. To ascend all five Munros in the group, the best option is a starting point in the remote upper reaches of Glen Affric to the north, though the approach to the foot of the ridges is very long and would usually require an overnight stay. The Corbett Càrn a' Choire Ghairbh could also be included.
