Sgùrr Mhic Chòinnich is a wedge-shaped ridge of rock above the back of Coire Lagan. For non-climbers it is probably one of the more difficult Cuillin Munros, the ridge from the bealach having one particularly exposed climb up. The mountain is named after the early local climbing guide, John Mackenzie.
