Sgurr Choinnich is one of the southern Munros of the Torridon region. It sits just NW of Loch Monar in a group of 3 Munros that span the western half of the Loch. Sgurr Choinnich is normally climbed with neighbouring Munro Sgurr a Chaorachain. Sgurr Choinnich boasts extremely steep craggy slopes to the north where Coire Choinnich bites deep into the face. These are a fine site and is well seen in the walk in from the north.
The summit ridge runs E - W. The E ridge drops to a craggy col at the head of Coire Choinnich before climbing the west ridge of Sgurr a Chaorachain. The west ridge leads down over manageable slopes to Bealach Bhearnais. This is the usual route of ascent. All ridges are craggy and care should be taken, especially on the north faces of Coire Choinnich. These are prone to cornicing in the winter months.
Sgurr Choinnich makes a fine vantage point in which to view the rest of the Torridon Hills further north as well as south to the remote glens around Glen Affric.
Most people access these Munros from the north at Achnashellach. A series of stalkers paths follow the Allt na Chonais to reach the western ridge of Sgurr Choinnich. This is a long walk in but an enjoyable one especially once you get Sgurr Choinnich's north face in your sights.
