Sgurr na Lapaich lies in a group of 4 Munros that rise form the northern shores of Loch Mullardoch. It is often climbed with is neighbours An Riabhachan and An Socach further west however there is a fairly large descent and re-ascent to include these Munros. Many people therefore choose to climb Sgurr na Lapaich on its own and leave the other two for another day Sgurr na Lapaich is the second peak in this long ridge that runs E-W the entire length of the loch. Sgurr na Lapaich is most definitely the finest peak and its size makes it a superb vantage point to view all of Glen Affric and Strathfarrar in all of its wildness!
The summit is bitten into on its SE and NE faces giving some quite impressive crags. The summit has an array of ridges running in all directions. The E ridge drops to a col before joining up with connecting Munro Carn Nan Ghobhar. The W ridge circles round Coire Ganda on an extremely craggy traverse to its other connecting Munro An Riabhachan. Both of these ridges are a superb traverse. A ridge also runs south round Loch a’ Choire Bhig to subsidiary peak Sgurr nan Clachan Geala before dropping down to Loch Mullardoch. The majority of these ridges will require scrambling but nothing is overly technical.
Sgurr na Lapaich and its neighbours are remote Munros and will demand a long walk in from any direction. A common access route is from the Loch Mullardoch Dam to the SE.
