Sgurr Mor is the highest Munro in the Fannaichs group sitting at 3641ft. This height makes it a fantastic vantage point in which to view the rest of the Fannaich hills. Most of the Fannaich Munros can be reached by one of Sgurr Mor’s summit ridges. The NW ridge leads to Carn na Criche and on to neighbouring Munro Meall a Chrasgaidh. The other western Fannaich Munros can be summited from here also. The southern ridge leads round the rim of several eastern corries to Meall Gorm. Finally the NE ridge leads to Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich giving rise to a fairly craggy and impressive ridge walk.
Sgurr Mor’s northern and eastern faces are steep and littered in crags. These are well seen from the NE. Beinn Liath Mhor Fannaich is almost always included within the route as it is easily accessed via Sgurr Mors NE ridge. You can also include as many of the other western Fannaichs that you wish limited only by daylight and your own fitness.
Sgurr Mor is perhaps the best of the Fannaichs but that is open to debate as this entire region is superb and attracts a lot of praise.
Most people access Sgurr Mor from the north at either the head of Loch Droma or from the lay-by that branches of to Loch a Bhraoin if you are including some of the western Fannaichs. Either way you will probably want to head to the 819m col between Carn na Criche and Meall a Chrasgaidh. Many of the Munros can be summited from here.
Sgurr Mor and its surrounding Munros make up a great day on the hills and from here you can really appreciate this wild and untouched area of the Scottish Highlands.
