Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine and Sgurr Dubh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two Corbetts on the south side of Glen Torridon attract little attention, even though Sgurr Dubh towers impressively above the road. Whilst they don't quite match up to their magnificent neighbours across the glen, they still offer a superb and very rugged mountain walk. The higher Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine has a sharp peak though often hidden from view, whilst Sgurr Dubh must rank amongst the rockiest mountains in Scotland. Both are stunning viewpoints.


Very rough going; there is a stalkers' path initially but most of the route is pathless with heather, bog, rock and scree. The terrain is complex and navigation would be very difficult in poor visibility.
