Sgurr nan Eag is the most southern Munro in the Black Cuillin ridge. It is mostly always climbed in conjunction with its nearest neighbour Sgurr Dubh Mor. Normal access to the hills is from the west starting at Glen Brittle and heading in via Coire a' Ghrunda which bites deep into the south west face of the Cuillin ridge. Sgurr nan Eag overlooks the corrie on its eastern side. There is a well marked cairned path that takes you into the corrie and pulls up to the main Cuillin ridge just north of Sgurr Dubh Mor. There is a fantastic scramble on offer on the ridge connecting Sgurr Dubh Mor with Sgurr nan Eag.
From the summit of Sgurr nan Eag the east ridge connects to subsidiary top Sgurr a Choire Beag before dropping sharply to the coast and marks the end of the Black Cuillin Ridge.
Sgurr nan Eag like all the of Cuillins is a superb outing with views a plenty in all directions. The best views however may possibly be south out to sea and over to the Small Isles of Muck, Rhum, Eigg and Canna. Although the views north taking in the entire Cuillin ridge is not a bad one either!
