Sgor Gaibhre - DESCRIPTION

Sgor Gaibhre is normally climbed in conjunction with Carn Dearg. It is a conical shaped peak with steep craggy slopes on its eastern side. The peak is the intersection of 3 ridges. The SW ridge connects to a low col and Mam Ban then on to the summit ridge of neighbouring Munro Carn Dearg. The NW ridge leads to the subsidiary peak Sgor Choinnich before dropping down the moorland floor just east of Corrour. The S ridge leads to the Corbett Meall na Meoig.

The ridge offers little in the way of scrambling as there is easy paths all the way but the eastern slopes as mentioned are steep and craggy and are best avoided.

From the summit you get distant views of Loch Ericht to the east and the backbone of the Ben Alder range to the north east.

Most people climb Sgor Gaibhre from Corrour Halt on the West Highland Train line as there are no public roads nearby. It is possible to climb both Sgor Gaibhre and Carn Dearg in the space between the first and last trains of the day but make sure you donít miss your train out or you will have a long walk ahead of you to get back to civilisation!
