Sgùrr Choinnich Mòr is the most westerly mountain of the Grey Corries group in Inverness-shire. Its summit stands at 3,589 feet and accordingly it is listed as a Munro.

The mountain runs up to a fine pointed summit, and descending from this peak the north face presents very craggy slopes to Glen Spean.

The southern slopes down to Glen Nevis are more gentle, though walkers approach from either side.

Ascents

Sgurr Choinnich Mor is normally climbed in one expedition with the other Munros that make up the long southwest - northeast ridge, though it is a long day if it: Stob Coire an Laoigh, tto which it is joined by the northeast ridge, and Stob Choire Claurigh beyond.

Sgurr Choinnich Mor is usually climbed from Glen Spean from the north if combing with the rest of the Grey Corries or from Glen Nevis in the south if climbing on its own. From the summit there are superb views of the Aonachs and Ben Nevis to the west and the entire Mamore range to the south.
