Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
Sgurr nan Coireachan is a steep mixture of grassy and rocky slopes, giving a tough ascent from Glen Dessary. If the ridge is followed to its termination on Sgurr na Ciche, however, it is merely the warm-up for the exertions to follow.
Region: Fort William

Other routes and challenges
Sgurr nan Coireachan could be climbed as an extension to the Sgurr Mor route, but this would make a very long day.
Another possibility is to link the hill to the Corbett, Sgurr Cos na Breachd-laoidh.
