This summit has been climbed in 35 logbooks.

Hill features

The best of the climbing potential is to be found on the summit tors of Sgor a' Bhatain, An Caisteal, and Sgor Chaonasaid, and also on the western cliffs of Sgor a' Chleirich. Also worth noting is the massive boulder field by the side of Loch Fhionnaich which would seem to have endless interest and potential for the boulderer. The rock type is syenite, this is a form of granite which has no quartz present.

Approach notes

Access from Ribigill farm. Park at the cattle grid just before entering the farm road itself and follow the land rover track and rough path south to the derelict croft of Cunside.
