Standing above the eastern end of Loch Cuaich (prev Loch Quoich), Gleouraich is a complex mountain. Gleouraich's northern faces are rough, contrasting with grass-covered slopes on the southern side. The ridge crossing the mountain's summit stretches eastwards and westwards : eastwards over a subsiduary peak, Creag Coire na Fiar Bhealaich and onwards to the neighbouring Munro, Spidean Mialach and westwards along the shoulder of Druim Seileach which overlooks steep slopes dropping to Glen Quoich below.

Most hillwalkers will most likely aim to climb Gleouraich using the stalkers track which travels uphill from Loch Cuaich. This track reaches to within a height of 200m of Gleouraich's summit, from where a path can be followed along the mountain's crest all the way over to Spidean Mialach.
