Southern Cuillin and Coire Ghrunnda

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The southernmost Cuillin peaks have the finest sea views in the whole range, and give a long, rough day. Sgurr nan Eag involves moderate scrambling; Sgurr Dubh Mor (which can be omitted) is a hard scramble.


If Sgurr Dubh Mor is omitted, moderate scrambling is needed for the entry to Coire Ghrunnda and for the ascent of Sgurr nan Eag (also much scree). With Sgurr Dubh Mor, hard scrambling is involved (walk grade 5)
