Sgùrr na Banachdich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgùrr na Banachdich is the mid-point of the Cuillin Ridge, and is the only Munro in the Cuillin where hands are not needed to make the ascent. The views along the ridge and down to Loch Coruisk are sensational.


Probably the easiest of the Cuillin Munros, this is still an extremely rugged and rocky walk with much steep, rough ground.

Public Transport

None to start.
