Sgurr Eilde Mor is the most easterly Munro of the Mamores and a fine looking Munro especially when viewed from the south west across coire an Lochain with its superb lochan guarding the base of the hill. This is probably the most famous view of this Munro.
The Munro itself is a triangular summit with a long NE running ridge that slowly drops to lead into Glen Nevis in the north. There are fantastic craggy scree slopes to the east.
Sgurr Eilde Mor can easily be combined with 3 other Munros which make up the eastern block of the Mamores or broken into smaller day trips if you’re not comfortable with covering the full lot. It can be tackled from either the north via Glen Nevis or from the south in Kinlochleven. Kinlochleven is more easily accessible but a walk through Glen Nevis is a must!
From the summit the views are superb in all directions. To the north you get great views of Ben Nevis, The Aonachs and the entire Grey Corries group. Looking west you can see the whole Mamore ridge sprawling out it infront of you. From the SE you can look right down Loch Eilde Mor, a high loch above Kinlochleven.
Sgurr Eilde Mor is connected via a very low col to the SE ridge of Binnein Mor. The lochan sits in this col and needs to be circumnavigated to get to the NW face of Sgurr Eilde Mor which is its most usual route of ascent from this angle.
