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. Sgùrr nan Eag involves moderate scrambling; Sgùrr Dubh Mòr (which can be omitted) is a hard scramble.


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