Details for Sgurr Fiona

Sgurr Fiona a peak on An Teallach which is one of the most impressive of Scotland’s mountains on mainland Britain situated to the south-west of Dundonnell, in an area often nicknamed the "great wilderness". The mountain lies to the north west of the pinnacled ridge tops Corrag Bhuide and Lord Berkely's Seat and together with Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill form an arching narrow ridge which rise above Coire Toll an Lochain which is the mountain ranges finest feature and one of the greatest corries in the Highlands. Sgurr Fiona is the second highest point on An Teallach mountain range and is one of the newer munros as it was promoted to the status of Munro in 1981. It is best viewed from the so called "Road of Desolation" (A832 from Braemore Junction) NH138792 .

Usual access is from Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill's southern ridge from a col which connects the 2 munro summits. Bidein a'Ghlas Thuill's summit is reached from the path up the north eastern ridge of Meall Garbh stating from Dundonnell then on up through the corrie to give access to summit. Alternative access can be gained from Corrie Hallie from along Sàil Liath's north eastern shoulder onto the ridge which is then along the pinnacled ridge to reach the summit of Sgurr Fiona. The pinnacled ridge tops Corrag Bhuide and Lord Berkely's Seat are a serious undertaking, especially in winter conditions and the mountain has sadly taken a number of lives over the years.

From the summit of Sgurr Fiona the view gives us a great impression of The Fisherfield Six group of hills on the south east, the Fannaich's on the south west, The Deargs to the east, & over over Little Loch Broom to the north.
