Sgurr na Ruaidhe 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 na Ruaidhe is the most eastern Munro of the group and will inevitably be the first Munro climbed if climbing these four Munros in one round.
The summit is rounded with an array of ridges joining from all directions. The main ridges run NW to a high col at the head of Coire na Sleaghaich and onto adjoining Munro Carn nan Gobhar. The SW ridge leads down to the bowl of Coire Mhuillidh and then south to join up with Glen Strathfarrar. This is the normal route of ascent for this group of Munros.
Sgurr na Ruaidhe is perhaps not the most interesting of the group but does have a great feeling of remoteness to it. Access is via a long walk in from Inchmore off the A831 to the east.
