Sgurr na Feartaig is a rugged hill of modest height stretching east-to-west above a few corries and Glen Carron.

Way back in the early 90's, I climbed Sgurr na Feartaig for the first time. It was bagged as a detour from Bealach Bhearnais on the way to bigger prizes such as Bidean a' Choire Sheasgaich and Lurg Mhor. It took me another 30 years to revisit, this time hiking and running up it on its own on a circular route from Craig.
