Sgurr Choinnich and Sgurr a'Chaorachain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The traverse of these two Munros gives an excellent hillwalk; an enjoyable ridge links the two summits at a high level though the approach is fairly long.


Good tracks lead to the foot of the mountains, a stalkers path to the bealach and a fairly straightforward if slightly rocky traverse over the mountains. Crossing the Allt a'Chonais can be a problem in spate.
