Details for Gairich

With a height of 919 metres (3015 feet), Gairich qualifies as a Munro by just four metres and is the 272nd ranked Munro.

Despite its relatively low height the mountain is rough and quite isolated with a substantial prominence of 552 metres and is conspicuous in the view up Glen Garry. It is seen as a conical peak when viewed from the Loch Quoich dam.

The mountain was initially named Scour Gairoch on the original 1891 list of Munros and is still occasionally called this, however it is now referred to generally as Gairich which translates from the Gaelic as “roaring” or Peak of Yelling” and is believed to refer to the roaring of stags in the rutting season.
