Sgòrr 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 Mhòr.
