Sgurr A' Mhaoraich
Sgurr A' Mhaoraich is a large mountain on the N shore of Loch Quioch and overlooking Kinloch Hourn. From the S it appears as a grassy mountain of easy to moderate slopes but it's N face is steep and craggy.

From the summit, ridges run S to a minor top (656m), W to Sgurr Mhaoraich Beag, N to Am-Bathaich, and E to Sgurr Coire nan Eiricheallach turning S to Bac nan Canaichean where a path ascends from the lochside.

A path ascending through Coire nan Eiricheallach gives acces to the E slopes of the S ridge. The N ridge leads down to col from where a descent E leads to a path in Coire a' Chaorainn.

Sgurr Alasdair
Sgurr Alasdair is the highest peak on the Black Cuillin Ridge. The Cuillin are composed of rough Gabbro rock which gives wonderful grip even when wet, but these mountains have steep faces and narrow ridges which invariably require scrambling or even rock-climbing to reach the summit.

The ascent of Sgurr Alasdair starts in Coire Lagan up the gully that ascends to the N face of Sgurr Alasdair. This Gully is called the Great Stone Shoot as it was once filled with scree.

Ascent starts on boulders, then scree and finally on zig-zag path to col. From here it is a short scramble to the summit.

Sgurr an Doire Leathain
Sgurr an Doire Leathain is one of the 7 Munros on the 14km South Glen Sheil Ridge. The ridge has steep slopes to the S and is very craggy with many corries to the N.

The traverse of the ridge follows the scalloped rims of the corries between peaks. The ridge may be climbed in two sections E and W but individual peaks are not easily accessed and do not require individual descriptions.

Sgurr an Doire Leathain is the most E peak of the W section and can be ascended by its SE ridge from Sgurr Coire na Feinne by following the path on the crest of Druim Thollaidh (the NE ridge of Sgurr Coire na Feinne) from Glen Shiel.

Sgurr an Lochain
Sgurr an Lochain is one of the 7 Munros on the 14km South Glen Sheil Ridge. The ridge has steep slopes to the S and is very craggy with many corries to the N.

The traverse of the ridge follows the scalloped rims of the corries between peaks. The ridge may be climbed in two sections E and W but individual peaks are not easily accessed and do not require individual descriptions.

Sgurr an Lochain in the W section is linked to Sgurr an Doire Leathain to the SE and Creag nan Damh to the NW.

Sgurr Ban
Sgurr Ban is compact hill with steep and some craggy slopes N, S and W of the summit.

To the E the slopes are moderate to easy above 600m becoming very craggy lower down, however, routes through the crags give access from the path to Loch a' Bhraoin.

To the S Sgurr Ban is linked to Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair by a broad col and both the N and NE ridges connect to Beinn a' Chlaidheimh

Sgurr Breac
Sgurr Breac is one of the group known as the Fannaichs, which lie to the N of Loch Fannich. Sgurr Breac and A' Chailleach are the most westerly of the group and tend to be climbed together.

Sgurr Breac has crags N of the summit and to the NE there is a high corrie with rocky flanks but otherwise the slopes are moderate with some steep areas.

Usual ascent routes are by the path from Loch a' Bhraoin to the bealach E of the summit or by the long ridge, Druim Reidh, of Tomain Coinich which lies to the WNW of the summit.

Sgurr Choinnich
Sgurr Choinnich is the most westerly of a group of three mountains at the W end of Loch Monar.

Sgurr Choinnich has steep and rocky slopes with crags on its N face. Most other slopes are steep but accessible.

The curved summit ridge is orientated NW to SE then S to Sgurr na Conbhaire (881m), overlooking Loch Monar. To the W a narrow ridge slopes down to Bealach Bernais and this is the normal ascent route. To the E a narrow col leads to Sgurr a' Chaorachain.

Sgurr Choinnich Mor
Sgurr Choinnich Mor is located at the W end of the Grey Corries Ridge. The summit is boulder and scree with crags, particularly to the N and E.

This is an uncomplicated mountain with two ridges, NNE to Stob Coire Easain (1080m) at a high col (930m) and SW to Sgurr Choinnich Beag (963m). Normal access is from Glen Nevis via the S slopes of Sgurr Choinnich Beag or via the Grey Corries Ridge.

Sgurr Dearg (inaccessible pinnacle)
Sgurr Dearg is one of the most challenging peaks on the Black Cuillin Ridge. The first 978m of Sgurr Dearg is within the ability of hillwalkers, however, the final 8m, which is the additional height of the narrow blade of rock known as the Inaccessible Pinnacle, is for climbers.

The ascent starts on Sron Dearg which is the W ridge of Sgurr Dearg Beag up grass and scree to a rocky ridge with some scrambling to reach Sgurr Dearg.

If you are prepared and have your climbing harness and a rope then go down the S side of the pinnacle to the base to join the queue to ascend the narrow exposed crest of the pinnacle and abseil down the W face.

Sgurr Dubh Mor
Sgurr Dubh Mor is one of the peaks on the Black Cuillin Ridge. The Cuillin are composed of gabbro rock which gives wonderful grip even when wet, but these mountains have steep faces and narrow ridges which invariably require scrambling or even rock-climbing to reach the summit.

The normal ascent route for Sgurr Dubh Mor follows a cairn marked path into Coire a' Ghrunda to reach Loch coir' a' Ghrunda, a route with some exposure on sloping slabs. From the N margin of the loch ascend NNE to Bealach a' Garbh-choire, then continue on the main ridge N to Sgurr Dubh an Da Bheinn and scramble along the pinnacled ridge to Sgurr Dubh Mor.
