Details for Sail Chaorainn

Sail Chaorainn is one of 3 munros which lie on the eastern end of a long chain of hills on the north of Glen Shiel and the most northerly of the 3. Sail Chaorainn lies just over a 1km to the north of its neigbouring munro Sgurr nan Conbhairean which is usually climbed on the same outing along with Carn Ghluasaid. The hill has 2 summits which are nearly equal in height. The first summit is the higher one at 1002 metres and is marked with a smallish cairn; the second cairn which is larger and more northern isn't the munro summit but offer a superior viewpoint.

Usual access is via Sgurr nan Conbhairean from Lundie on the A87 road, 4 kilometres west of the Loch Cluanie dam on a good stalker path.

On the eastern side 250 metres down and marked on the map is Prince Charlie's Cave which is a shelter stone formed by a few bolders. Bonnie Prince Charlie was in hiding here for a week during his escape after defeat at Culloden.
