Sgurr a Mhaoraich lies on its own to the north of Loch Quoich about 5km west of its nearest neighbouring Munro Gleouraich. The single track road round the north of Loch Quoich gives this hill good accessibility. Sgurr a Mhaoraich has similar traits to the other Munros on the north of Loch Quoich in that its southern slopes are mainly easy grassy slopes but the north face is rough, craggy and rocky due to the presence of multiple corries. From the summit, ridges radiate N, W, S and E with the east ridge being the normal route of ascent passing over a subsidiary peak Sgurr Coire nan Eiricheallach and gives rise to some excellent scrambling opportunities nearer the main summit. A longer route can be taken by summiting via the N ridge which involves another rocky traverse from another subsidiary top An Bathaich.
Like all Knoydart hills the views on offer should be nothing short of spectacular if you get the weather with the finest views down Loch Quoich and across to the south Loch Quoich Munros.
Access is available via a minor road that runs along the north of Loch Quoich.
