Carn Sgulain is the most northern and eastern of the Monadh Liath Mountains but is well hidden behind its taller neighbour A Chailleach. The hill is really nothing more than a large lump rising from the tail end of the Monadh Liath so possesses little if any in the way of technical difficulties compared to its neighbours. There are however slightly craggy slopes to the SE of the summit which you should be careful if should you use this face to ascend to the summit.
Carn Sgulain is usually climbed in conjunction with its neighbouring Munro A’ Chailleach via its easy southern slopes.
Carn Sgulain makes a great vantage point to view the rest of the Monadh Liath right down to Geal Charn and you should be able to see further SW to the Creag Meagaidh group.
There is parking available at Newtonmore along with other local amenities.
