Detailed route description and map

Sgurr na Banachdich via Coire nan Eich

Other routes and challenges

The complete round of Coire Ghreadaidh is described as an optional extension to the Sgurr a' Mhadaidh and Sgurr a' Ghreadaidh route.

Another option is the Sgurr nan Gobhar ridge - very unpleasant to reach, but then with good straightforward scrambling along the crest. It is also possible to ascend from the Bealach Coire na Banachdich, with very airy, challenging scrambling to negotiate or avoid three tops.
