Sgurr na Banachdich lies in the middle section of the Black Cuillin Ridge. It is connected to its nearest Munros on either side by sharp craggy ridges with scrambling opportunities a plenty. Sgurr a Ghreadaidh lies to the north and Sgurr Dearg (the In Pinn) to the south. The summit has 3 main ridges leading W NE and SE. The W ridge leads to subsidiary peak Sgurr nan Gobhar. The other ridges lead as mentioned to the connecting Munros on the main Cuillin ridge.
Access is normally from the west at Glen Brittle. A deep corrie Corrie na Banachdich bites into the western side of the mountain giving an access path at the head of the corrie to Bealach Coire na Banachdich, where the final climb up the south ridge will take you to the summit. An alternative route takes you up the NW summit ridge from Coir' an Eich to make the route circular.
Sgurr na Banachdich can be climbed on its own or combined with other Munros connected to it on the main Cuillin Ridge the choice is yours. As with all the Cuillins the views are nothing short of spectacular in all directions.
