Sgurr Fhuar-thuill is part of a group of 4 Munros that lie to the north of Glen Strathfarrar and East of Loch Monar. The 4 can be climbed in one outing as they are all connected via a series of ridges and cols but you can happily split these into smaller days. Sgurr Fhuar-thuill is the most western Munro of the group.
The summit appears rounded from the south but its northern face is steep and craggy as it is bitten into by two corries on either side of the summit. Sgurr Fhuar-thuill has two subsidiary tops Sgurr na Fearstaig further west on the ridge and Creag Ghorm a' Bhealaich further east along the summit ridge. The slopes to the south are grassy and much more accessible than those on the north. Access is normally via the south ridge from the subsidiary peak Sgurr na Fearstaig or from continuation along the main ridge from neighbouring Munro Sgurr a Choire Ghlais. All routes will demand a long walk in, starting many km east from the A831.
