Sgùrr a' Choire Ghlais is a mountain on the border of Ross-shire with Inverness-shire, which reaches a height of 3,553 feet at its summit, and so it qualifies as a Munro. It stands between Glen Strathfarrar and Glen Orrin
This is the highest mountain in its group, its summit looking out over a broad spectacle, and around it in the same group of mountains are three other Munros; Sgurr na Ruaidhe, Sgurr Fhuar-thuill and Carn nan Gobhar. Northwards there is no higher ground apart from the Fannaichs.
It is one of the most difficult hills to reach in the Highlands, the shortest route involving a 10-mile approach up Glen Strathfarrar. A bicycle, or permission to drive along the private road up Strathfarrar, may shorten the approach.
