Sgurr nan Coireachan is part of a long ridge running for 10km W-E to the south of Loch Quoich and the north of Glen Kingie. Sgurr nan Coireachan lies towards the western end where an extremely craggy western ridge leads to neighbouring Munro Garbh Chioch Mhor. Its eastern ridge is much more subdued taking you on a long airy walk to Sgurr Mor. A north ridge leads down to the shores of Loch Quoich via subsidiary peak An Eag and finally a south ridge with manageable slopes drops to Glen Dessary. The south ridge is often used as route for ascent / descent.
As mentioned Sgurr nan Coireachan in part of a long ridge taking in 5 Munros. This would be an extremely tough day so it is advisable to break it down into smaller chunks. Sgurr nan Coireachan fits in nicely with a round of Sgurr na Ciche and Garbh Chioch Mhor both to the west. The walk becomes increasingly more hairy the further west you go with scrambling opportunities a plenty.
Sgurr nan Coireachan like most the hills that sit within the rough bounds of Knoydart is an extremely remote Munro involving a long walk in from any direction. A possible starting point is from the head of Loch Arkaig to the south. There is an excellent opportunity with these hills to turn them into a multi day expedition with an abundance of bothies to support this.
