Corryhully Horseshoe and Glenfinnan

Sgurr nan Coireachan and Sgurr Thuilm form the Corryhully Horseshoe which lies just outwith the Rough Bounds of Knoydart. Their rugged terrain and complexity is similar to the peaks in the Rough Bounds. The views from the summits of both Munros are outstanding, particularly westwards along Loch Morar towards Rum and Skye.


Main route summary


Most visitors head in from Glenfinnan via the fine road up Glen Finnan to the bothy at Corryhully.

Streap, a Corbett on the opposite side of Glenfinnan, can also be added in from this direction, or done on its own. To bag this Corbett requires some scrambling, particularly on the summit crest.

Just to the south of Sgurr nan Coireachan lies another Corbett, Sgurr an Utha. A fine peak, easily obtained, but perhaps best done on its own. The views from Sgurr an Utha's summit to Sgurr Thuilm and Sgurr nan Coireachan are simply stunning !
