Sgor Gaoith - Image Gallery

Sgor Gaoith is a fine peak especially when viewed from the east. The eastern face drops almost instantly to the shores of Loch Einich below and is a daunting site from any angle. The summit cairn is perched right on the edge of the cliffs and care must be taken in bad weather to avoid walking a bit too far! This rocky face continues both south and north passing the subsidiary peak of Sgoran Dubh Mhor. The western faces are much more forgiving dropping down gently to Glen Feshie over heather clad slopes, this is the normal route of ascent. The south ridge leads to subsidiary peak Carn Ban Mor before joining up with the Moine Mhor, a large summit plateau extending many miles south west.

A common route starts at Auchlean at the head of Glen Feshie where there is parking available. A long pull up the western face will take you to the summit.
