Gairich sits south of Loch Quoich quite isolated from its surrounding Munros. Gairich is dominated by its large north facing Coire Liath Looking across Loch Quoich this is a fine site. The corrie is steep rocky and craggy. A smaller corrie exists on its eastern slopes. The summit ridge runs SW – NE with a subsidiary peak Gairich Beag at the SW tip.
The two corries gives rise to some fantastic ridges that can be used for ascending. From the summit there is a SE and NE ridge formed by its eastern corrie. The SE ridge is a common route of ascent. There is a large SW ridge that passes Gairich Beag again this is a possible route of ascent.
Gairich’s nearest Munro neighbour is Sgurr Mor to the west which is connected to Gairich's SW ridge via a very low col. This means Gairich can possibly be tagged onto your outing of Sgurr Mor but most people tend to leave it separate and attack it from the Loch Quoich dam.
From the summit you should get great panoramic views especially to the Munros across to the other side of Loch Quoich and the rest of the South Loch Quoich hills to your west.
Overall Gairich should live up to the reputation of Knoydart and offers a fantastic expedition even though it only qualifies as a Munro by 4m!
