Moruisg and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Moruisg is rather a sprawling mountain but is a superb viewpoint. The ascent line given here has the one merit of directness, but continuing the walk onto Sgurr na Ceannaichean follows an enjoyable ridge making for a good, fairly moderate mountain walk.


The lower ground across the railway is very boggy, whilst the upper slopes give simple hillwalking. The descent is fairly steep; some parts pathless.

Public Transport
