Sgurr Innse


Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
809 m (2654 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

Mountain names are usually in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands, or have been derived from the old Scots and Norse languages. We give the most commonly accepted meaning, but accept that some of these are disputed.

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Sgurr Innse and its larger neighbour Cruach Innse (Corbett) (857m) lie 2km apart separated by a col (593m) and are naturally climbed together. They are located on the S side of Glen Spean.

These are two steep sided mountains with some rocky slopes. Sgurr Innse is a triangular cone with three short ridges; NW, SW and E. Sgurr Innse is also the rockier of the two and requires some minor scrambling to reach the summit.

Hazards you may encounter on Sgurr Innse include
 Steep slopes on or near ascent routes.
 Stony/rocky Slopes on or near ascent routes.
 Crags near summit.
 Scrambling (minor), easy hand and footholds.
General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

Worth a quick jaunt up-and-down if you're staying the night in the bothy below. Had a conversation with my sister stood on the bothy doorstep whilst I was stood on the summit rocks on one particular clear and calm day.
