Sgurr Ghiubhsachain (849m, Corbett) – Peak of the Fir-wood
Sgorr Craobh a’Chaorainn (775m, Corbett) – Rowantree peak

Sgurr Ghiubhsachain is a fabulous mountain rising as a grand rocky pyramid from the shores of Loch Shiel and is a familiar sight in the classic view from Glenfinnan Monument.

Sgorr Craobh a’ Chaorainn is less conspicuous, being hidden by the rocky heights overlooking the loch.

Both are considered separate Corbetts but are part of the same mountain mass that makes up the rocky headwall of Coire Ghiubhsachain.

A shorter route omitting the second Corbett is possible.

18km, 1241m ascent
15km, 938m ascent – omitting Sgorr Craobh a’Chaorainn

For more details of the route visit or the Nevis Hillwalking Club Facebook page.

Walks may change at short notice due to conditions on the day and Covid restrictions.
