Sgurr na Banachdich is a Munro at the exact mid-point of the Cuillin Ridge and is a fantastic viewpoint. Hands are not needed to make the ascent.


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.


Parking by Glen Brittle Youth Hostel. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
