Sgor na h'Ulaidh from Achnachon, Glen Coe
Introduction to Walk 3118

Photo from the walk - Sgor na h'Ulaidh from Achnachon, Glen Coe

County/Area - Highland

Author - Peter Smyly

Length - 7.0 miles / 11.4 km

Ascent - 3000 feet / 909 metres

Time - 6 hours 30 minutes

Grade - mod/hard

If Sgor na h'Ulaidh was in England, it would be the highest peak in the country at 3,258 feet. Instead, this peak hides behind the Bidean Nam Bian massif to the south side of Glen Coe and is only likely to be visited by those wanting to tick a box on a list of Munros. However it is a rocky hill that deserves more attention.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. Travel restrictions for exercise in Wales and Scotland will be lifted in early July.
