Details for Sgorr nam Fiannaidh

Sgorr nam Fiannaidh is situated on the western end of the narrow 2mile (3km) exposed ridge known as the Aonach Eagagh (Notched ridge) and dominates the north of Glencoe. It is usually reached as part of the classic scramble along the Aonach Eagagh ridge while climbing Meall Dearg which lies on the eastern side of the ridge.

It can also be climbed without the need for scrambling via a col below the Pap of Glencoe.

Descent from the ridge route is usually from this munro as Aonach Eagagh is recommended to do east-west and the most direct route down is due south over a very steep slope consisting of boulders an scree where care is needed especially in wet conditions.

In winter conditions this munro is a very serious undertaking

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Sgorr nam Fiannaidh is Forty-Three
