Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan is a Glen Affric classic, that due to its large stature is well seen from all over the area. The summit has a spider like appearance with 5 sharp ridges all coming together at the summit it’s really a fantastic sight. Most of the crags lie to the north where 3 large corries bite into the mountain. The summit is twin peaked with 8m height difference between them. These two tops lie at either end of the corrie directly north of the summit ridge. The eastern top is the true summit. The 5 protruding ridges give rise to a whole series of tops and subsidiary peaks. The NE ridge and E ridge lead to adjoining Munros Mullach na Dheiragin and An Socach respectively. Both ridges offer a great rocky traverse, either of these can usually be added on to your walk.
These are remote Munros and will demand a long walk however you approach them. The most common approaches are from the West at Morvich off the A87 and from the south at Cluanie Lodge at the west end of Loch Cluanie. Both will give a great walk as Sgurr nan Ceathreamhnan really is one of Scotland’s best Munros.
