Sgurr Mhor is part of a long ridge running for 10km W-E to the south of Loch Quoich and the north of Glen Kingie. Sgurr Mor is the largest of the ridge sitting at 3290ft. The north slopes are bitten into by a small corrie giving them a rocky craggy appearance and the southern slopes are also steep but less formidable. From the summit a long craggy ridge leads SW to join up with neighbouring Munro Sgurr nan Coireachan. This ridge becomes increasingly craggier the further west you go. A ridge runs SE from the summit which drops to a very low col between Sgurr Mhor and its distant neighbour Gairich. This can possibly be attempted if you are an extremely fit walker otherwise Gairich is best left for a separate day. Another ridge also leads NE from the summit to a subsidiary peak before dropping sharply to Loch Quoich side.
Sgurr Mor is like the rest of the Munros south of Loch Quoich, extremely remote and will demand a long walk in no matter which direction you come from. The most usual route if climbing on its own is by a long walk in past Glen Dessary Lodge from the head of Loch Arkaig. Otherwise it is easily connected to the neighbouring Munros to the west and possibly east depending on how fit you are!
