Sron a Choire Ghairbh sits in the middle of a horseshoe ridge which sweeps round the huge Coire Glas with two main ridges running down either side of the coire. A small lochan sits within the coire called Loch a’ Choire Ghlais adding a bit of character to the hill. Connected to the southern most ridge is a bealach connecting Sron a Choire Ghairbh to its neighbouring Munro Meall Na Teanga which is normally included in the ascent.
The ascent can be done from either the south from the B8005 or from the north on the A82 at Laggan Locks. Either way you will ascend to the bealach between the two Munros and summit each of them from there. These Munros are the furthest east of the region and offer superb views south to the Nevis and Mamore range as well as West to the rest of the Munros in the region and as far out as the Island Munros on Skye should you get a clear day.
