Details for Sgurr nan Each

Sgurr nan Each is not an easy mountain to view from any main road being set in the interior of the Fannichs with lines of sight often blocked by the other eight Munros in the group.

It overlooks Loch Fannich and reaches a height of 923 metres (3028 feet) making it the 266th highest Munro. Its name originates from the Gaelic language and translates as “Peak of the Horses”.

Sgurr nan Each stands on a spur that goes south off the main Fannaichs ridge. This ridge which is scalloped and steep on its eastern side also contains the adjoining and higher Munro of Sgurr nan Clach Geala which stands two kilometres to the north. The two mountains are joined by a ridge which is sharp in places and provides some minor scrambling and has a low point of 815 metres. Sgurr nan Each falls away abruptly on its eastern flanks with crags in places to the valley of the Allt a’ Choire Mhoir. To the west the slopes are grassy and moderate down to the 700 metre contour before falling abruptly to the head of Loch Fannich. To the south the ridge continues over the subsidiary top of Sgurr a’ Chadha Dheirg (866 metres) before dropping down to the shores of Loch Fannich.
