Gulvain is a remote Munro 10Km north east of Glenfinnan. It is described as being a Y shaped mountain due to Coire Sgreamhach cutting into the northern end of the summit ridge splitting it into two. The main summit ridge runs SW – NE with two peaks. The true summit sits at the NE end of the ridge overlooking the coire. The drops both west and east of the summit ridge are fairly intense especially towards the midpoint of the two peaks.
The Munro sits at the end of Gleann Fionnlighe which is usually accessed from the A830 at the west end of loch Eil; it is a long pull up onto the south top from this angle. There are other long routes in from the north from Knoydart if you wish to make an expedition of it. No matter which route you choose there are long walk in is to be had which possibly can be cycled dependant on how comfortable you are. From the summit there are superb views to be had as Gulvain is the highest Munro in the area. The Nevis range and Mamores to the south look particularly fine as does the Knoydart hills to the north. From here you can really appreciate how remote this part of Scotland really is!
