Gleouraich is normally climbed in conjunction with Spidean Mialach. The two are connected by a long ridge to the north of Loch Quoich. These are superb Munros with 2 very different characters to them. The south facing slopes are largely grassy easy slopes attracting a whole series of fauna. The north side is much harsher and has a whole array of craggy corries biting into the face for the entire duration of the ridge.
Gleouraich is at the west end of the ridge. From the summit the main ridge splits NW and SW the latter being a popular route of ascent. The main connecting ridge to Spidean Mialach runs round the rim of several northern corries giving an excellent craggy traverse.
The best views are to the SW looking over Loch Quoich and to the north face of the long South Loch Quoich Ridge taking in 5 Munros.
These are superb Knoydart Munros as you would expect. They are less remote than their neighbours to the south of Loch Quoich and possibly seen as the easiest of the area.
