Other routes and challenges
If not completing the classic ridgewalk given above, it is possible to ascend and / or descent the west ridge of Sgurr Fhuaran. The going is straightforward but punishingly steep for almost 1000m in height. An alternative is the east ridge from Gleann Lichd house; this narrow ridge looks very tempting from afar but the more remote start means it sees few people.
The traverse of the Five Sisters is a long and demanding walk in its own right; the super-fit may attempt to extend it by also including the three further Munros of the Brothers ridge, and perhaps even Ciste Dhubh as well.
