Sgurr Ban sits to the north of Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair on the eastern edge of the Fisherfield Forrest a very remote area of the Scottish Highlands. As its name suggests Sgurr Ban has a distinctive top due to being coated in quartzite. When the sun catches this rock it looks fantastic. The summit itself has 2 main ridges running N and SSW. The SSW ridge runs to a high col before connecting with its much larger neighbour Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair. The northern ridge terminates bluntly overlooking Loch a Bhrisid. Most of the faces on the Munro are steep but free of crags. The western slopes do however have a few crags but you needn’t go there.
An expedition into these Munros no matter how many you do is a great day (or two) on the hills is a superb area of the Scottish Highlands.
However you approach these Munros they will demand a long walk in. Kinlochewe to the south is widely used if tackling several in this region as it gives you the option of cycling part of the way in however other routes are used including coming from loch a Bhraoin as used for the western Fannaich Munros.
