Details for Beinn Sgritheall

Beinn Sgritheall has one of the finest situations of any of the munros rising on the north of the hamlet of Arnisdale by the south shores of Loch Hourn. It's quite a spectacular sight and Beinn Sgritheall lives upto its name "hill of scree" with it's southern flanks littered with scree slopes & crags making it look very intimidating. On the northern side are the finest features hidden away which are the remote northern ridges and corries which should really be avoided .

Usual access is from the tiny hamlet of Arnisdale and then a steep climb upto the Bealach Arnasdale onto the eastern top where the summit can be reached. If doing the full traverse of the hill follow ridge to west of summit dropping over a couple of rocky towers down to a lochan and on to join the road back to Arnisdale.

On a clear day the summit point makes an excellent viewpoint over Loch Hourn to the Knoydart hills on the south, and to LochThe Isle of Skye & in particular The Cuillin to the west.
