Saileag along with its two neighbouring eastern Munros Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg and Aonach Meadhoin form what is sometimes known as the North Glen Shiel Ridge or the Brothers Ridge. It runs for 3.5km on the north side of Glen Shiel.

Saileag is the most western Munro and has a triangular summit with 3 summit ridges. The western ridge drops to Bealach an Lapain before joining up with the 5 sisters of Kintail group. The eastern ridge connects via a high col to Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg. The northern slopes of Saileag are craggy and rocky due to being bitten into by several corries the southern slopes are still steep but generally free of crags.

There are fantastic views south to the south Glen Shiel Ridge as well as north to Beinn Fhada and the hills of Glen Affric.

The usual route of ascent is via Bealach an Lapain and continuation of the ridge from here completing it west to east. There is parking available on the A87 directly south of the bealach.
