Sgorr Ruadh is one of the fine sandstone monoliths of the Couilin Forest. It has a magnificent face above Coire Lair but the south and west sides are much less impressive. The mountain is often climbed on its own via its steep but soggy southern slopes, or more interestingly from the bealach linking with Beinn Liath Mhor.
Altitude: 962 metres

Other routes and challenges
Sgorr Ruadh is often ascended together with Beinn Liath Mhor - the route description of the latter mountain includes how to link them together. It is possible to link the route with Fuar Tholl as well.
Very fit walkers could begin from Annat on Loch Torridon, using stalkers paths to reach the Bealach na Lice and then the Bealach Ban before ascending to Sgorr Ruadh.
