Beinn Sgritheall is a fantastic Munro rising from the north shores of Loch Hourn. It is the most northern Munro in this region and stands on its own separate from any other Munros. The summit ridge is curved with 3 tops the most western one being the largest thus the true Munro summit. The north slopes rise sharply from Loch Hourn and are scree ridden for much of their duration. This is an extremely impressive looking face but it is best avoided. To the north there are 3 main corries giving rise to impressive ridge structures. From the summit a long craggy ridge heads east to the two other subsidiary peaks. A sharp ridge runs NE from the summit following the rims of 2 back to back corries giving very steep drops on either side.
Ascents can be made on either the west and east ridges but both have a demanding pull up from Loch Hourn. Either should result in a fantastic climb.
The views from Beinn Sgritheall are nothing short of spectacular. Panoramic views exist all around you with Ladhar Bheinn across Loch Hourn possibly being the finest angle.
