Sgorr Ruadh is a fine Munro separating Strath Carron in the south and Glen Torridon to the north. With its neighbouring peaks of Beinn Liath Mhor and Fuar Tholl (not a Munro) they make a fine set of hills and are connected by a series of ridges and cols.

The summit of Sgorr Ruadh has two tops with the SW top being the true summit. The cliffs to the north overlooking Coire Lair are extremely steep and craggy and are left for the climbers amongst you. The southern slopes are easier therefore the usual route of ascent. The bealach between Sgorr Ruadh and Fuar Tholl marks the start of the summit ridge. The NW ridge is used to connect to Beinn Liath Mhor. It leads NW before switching NE to attain the summit ridge of Beinn Liath Mhor. This is a knobbly traverse.

Sgorr Ruadh is well seen from most angles and makes a fine viewing point itself in which to view the northern peaks of Torridon in all their glory, Liathach across Glen Torridon looks particularly fine.

Overall this is fantastic day out, on fantastic Munros in a fantastic region; a good day should be had by all.
