Sgùrr Mhic Chòinnich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgùrr Mhic Chòinnich is one of the most difficult of the Cuillin Munros to reach for non rock-climbers. The final approach along the ridge is an exposed and in places difficult scramble; the rock scenery throughout is superb.


Rough walking to Coire Lagan, then a very steep ascent up scree to reach the ridge. The route beyond is a very exposed and in places difficult scramble, sometimes on basalt which is slippery when wet.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking at Glen Brittle above the beach. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
