Sgòrr Ruadh, Achnashellach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgòrr Ruadh is a majestically-sculpted sandstone peak which shows an impressive face above Coire Làir. Munro-baggers often climb this peak in combination with Beinn Liath Mhor, in which case the latter peak is best climbed first.


Easy approach paths are followed by a stream crossing that could be awkward in spate. Higher up the route crosses pathless, complex and rough ground requiring good navigation. The descent includes some easy scrambling.
