Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr Dubh Mor is a dramatic rock peak situated just off the main Cuillin Ridge and usually reached by baggers via tricky and hard to find scramble from the rest of the range. On the other side the Dubhs Ridge leads directly from Loch Coruisk to the summit - this is the longest rock-climb in Britain and a total classic for those with the skills.

Other routes and challenges

The above route is the most straightforward - but is still a hard scramble, with careful route-finding necessary.

Ascending via the Dubhs Ridge from Loch Coruisk is a mountaineering classic, one of the longest rock-climbs in Britain - but it necessitates climbing skills as well as a necessary abseil from Sgurr Dubh Beag.
