Sgurr na Ciche, Garbh Chioch Mhor and Sgurr nan Coireachan

Sgurr na Ciche, Garbh Chioch Mhor and Sgurr nan Coireachan are lofty, rough and remote Munros at the west end of Glen Dessarry, on the eastern edge of the Knoydart peninsula. The mountains are most easily approached via Glen Dessarry from the end of the road at the west end of Loch Arkaig. The long single track road up Loch Arkaig is itself a bit of an experience but to then explore these wild and remote hills is something else again.

Sgurr na Ciche and Garbh Chioch Mhor are less than one kilometre apart, separated by the Feadan na Ciche bealach at 845 metres. Sgurr nan Coireachan is the most easterly of the three peaks some 2.5 kilometres from Garbh Chioch Mhor with the subsidiary top of Garbh Chioch Bheag and the Bealach Coire nan Gall at 733 metres between.
