Detailed route description and map

Sgurr Dubh Mor and Sgurr nan Eag via Coire Ghrunnda

Other routes and challenges

The route above from the Bealach a' Garbh Choire is usually preferred. The bealach can also be reached - over extremely rough and bouldery ground - from the Coruisk side.

The flank of Gars-bheinn has unrelentingly steep scree which deters this as an approach.
