Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg along with its two neighbouring Munros Saileag 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.
Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg is the peak of the ridge with its fine north facing corries and sharp summit ridges. The summit has four ridges. The western and eastern ridges connect to each of the adjoining Munros via high cols. There are two parallel north ridges which giving rise to 3 distinct corries.
The northern slopes of the Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg are steep and craggy and lead to Fionngleann, a deep valley which separates the Glen Shiel hills from the hills of Glen Affric. The southern slopes are equally steep but generally free of crags.
Due to the steepness if all the slopes Sgurr a Bhealaich Dheirg is rarely climbed on its own but rather as a continuation on the main ridge from one of its neighbours. Coming from either side it is a great walk with fine ridges to keep you on your toes.
The usual route of ascent is via Saileag to the west and continuation of the ridge from here completing it west to east. There is parking available on the A87 below Saileag.
