Sgùrr na Strì

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Diminutive Sgùrr Na Strì may be reach 494 metres in height, but it's proof that - when it comes to mountains - size doesn't matter. Reaching it requires a long and quite rugged walk, but the rewards are immense. Many walkers reckon that the view from the summit - over Loch Coruisk, the Cuillin and the sea - is the finest in all Britain.


Clear footpath for most of the walk, but the final ascent to Sgùrr na Strì is rough, rocky and pathless and requires careful route-finding.
