Lurg Mhor is most southern Munro in the Torridon region and one of the more inaccessible ones. Lurg Mhor is normally climbed with neighbouring Munro Bidein a Choire Sheasgaich as the two are connected by a high ridge. The summit has two tops on either end of a small plateau with the western top being the true Munro summit. From the summit there are 2 main ridges. The W ridge leads via a high rocky ridge to a col and on to Bidein a Choire Sheasgaich. The eastern ridge is much longer running down the spine of Meall Mhor to the shores of Loch Monar. This ridge has a series of crags on the northern side and slightly easier slopes on the southern side.

From the summit you get fantastic views north to the rest of the Torridon hills and also south east to the hills of Glen Affric and Strathfarrar.

Access is normally via Achnashellach to the north and will demand a long walk in. Bidein a Choire Sheasgaich is normally climbed first via its long northern ridge and onto Lurg Mhor from there. There are however many others ways to approach these Munros. These hills are remote and give a great expedition to climb them. Although not quite as well known as the classics of Torridon to the north, these hills do offer a superb outing.
