Details for Sgurr na Banachdich

Sgurr na Banachdich is one of the main summits on the Black Cuillin ridge. Like the rest of the range it is composed of gabbro, a rock with excellent grip for mountaineering.

This is one of the easiest of the main Black Cuillin peaks to ascend. The simplest route ascends via Coire nan Eich from Glen Brittle. Hands are unlikely to be required until the summit is reached, though there is much steep ground and scree.

Other routes require more scrambling ability, including the excellent ridge running out to Sgurr nan Gobhar which is fairly straightforward but best used for descent. In both directions, the main Cuillin ridge requires moderate scrambling.

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Sgurr na Banachdich is Twenty-Four
