Sgor Gaibhre and Carn Dearg are the two Munro peaks south of Loch Ossian linked by a long, wide grass covered ridge. Sgor Gaibhre has a northern Munro Top neighbour, Sgor Choinnich, both dome-shaped, grass covered and rather lacking in distinctive character.

Possibly the most enjoyable route up Sgor Gaibhre is the round of Loch Ossian from Corrour Train Halt, which also takes in Beinn na Lap and Carn Dearg.

Alternatively, if you fancy a bit of cycling, Sgor Gaibhre can bagged With Carn Dearg from near Rannoch Station using he estate tracks that have been markedly improved over recent year. This route could be extended to include the nearby Corbett of Meall na Meoig.
