On the edge of the Rough Bounds of Knoydart, Sgurr Mhurlagain is a grass-covered hulk of a hill. The hillsides on its southern face drop fairly uniformly down to the northern shores of Loch Arkaig, whereas the north-eastern side of the hill more interestingly splits into three long spurs surrounding two corries above the upper reaches of Glen Kingie.

Most likely to be approached from the western end of Loch Arkaig, where a rather uninteresting and undemanding hike up a pathless and wide grass-covered and gently rising slope, leads up Sgurr Mhurlagain's south-western shoulder.
