Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Sgurr nan Clach Geala is the finest of the Fannichs, with its impressive eastern corrie. In combination with the neighbouring Munros of Meall a' Chrasgaidh and Sgurr nan Each it gives an excellent ridgewalk.


Stalkers path on the approach, with a river crossing which could be tricky in wet weather (possible detour to bridge). Pathless and steep ascent and descent from the ridge.

Public Transport

None to start.


Layby on A832, south west of Braemore junction. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
