Sgurr Breac is normally climbed in conjunction with A Chailleach which lies immediately west of it along a broad connecting ridge. Sgurr Breac has steep craggy sides on its northern slopes which rise from the shores of Loch a’ Bhraoin. The summit has 2 main ridges running W and NE. The W ridge leads to subsidiary top Toman Coinnich before joining up with the east ridge of neighbouring Munro A Chailleach. This is a wide ridge and should not pose any problem however the northern slopes can become craggy especially near to Sgurr Breac. The NE ridge forms an arc before dropping to the shores of Loch a’ Bhraoin. This is a possible route of ascent.
Sgurr Breac is one of the more accessible Munros of the Fannaichs due to its close proximity to the A832 road. There clumps of parking available off the road where a path braches off leading to Loch a’ Bhraoin. Sgurr Breac makes for an excellent viewing platform in which to view the other western Fannaich Munros.
