Long Description:

Sron a' Choire Ghairbh (The nose of the rough corrie) is a 3066 feet, (935 metre) Munro overlooking Loch Lochy on its western side. It is a rounded mountain from the west, but with crags to the south-east and corries cutting into the mountain from the north and east. The relatively level summit is marked by a cairn only a few yards from the corrie edge to the north-east. The mountain is usually climbed from the Càm Bhealach to the south, which is also the usual route up the neighbouring mountain of Meall na Teanga to the south. There are two usual starting routes, from Kilfinnan on the north shore of Loch Lochy to the east, or from Gleann Cia-aig to the south-west.

STEEPNESS: The pull up to the top of the bealach reaches the 2000 foot mark and from there it is up the steep south flank which fortunately is eased by a zig-zag path. The final few hundred yards are relatively easy.

TERRAIN: A path all the way from Kilfinnan to the bealach. From Gleann Cia-aig however the initial forestry road becomes a faint track through the moorland which eventually disappears and leaves nearly two miles of trackless terrain over rough grass and heather up to the bealach. From the bealach it is easy going up the steep zig-zagging path which peters out on the top, but the rest of the way is on easy going short heath.

ACCESSIBILITY: Three and a half miles to the bealach from Kilfinnan, four and a half from Gleann Cia-aig. It is around half a mile top the summit from the Bealach.

NAVIGATION: No difficulties on the track from Kilfinnan, but the easterly direction from the end of Gleann Cia-aig would be awkward on the trackless terrain in mist. On the trackless summit area head north-west along the corrie edge.

DANGER: The Gleann Cia-aig route heads through some remote country. The summit cairn is only a few yards from the corrie edge which can be corniced with snow.

Altitude in Feet: 3066
