Sgurr Mhic Bharraich

Routes up Sgurr Mhic Bharraich in the Western Highlands

Sgurr Mhic Bharraich is a grass covered little hill surrounded by the higher peaks of Kintail, The Saddle and Arnisdale.

Fine views are to be had on clear days from the summit, particularly towards the nearby peaks and ridges and to Skye, Applecross, Torridon and Knoydart.


Main route summary


The hill is most easily accessed using a fine path from Shiel Bridge to the north-east, or alternatively hiking from the highest point on the Bealach Ratagan.

Routes up the hill are short enough to allow for a leisurely stroll, leaving enough time in the day for more hill-bagging !
