Na Gruagaichean sits just east of the centre of the Mamores range. Its Munro summit is connected to another top to the north-west via a narrow little gap, easy enough to negotiate in most conditions, but slightly challenging if ice-covered.

With a drop of only 100m between Na Gruagaichean and nearby Binnein Mor, these two Munros are often hiked together from Kinlochleven or Mamore Lodge to the south, using fine stalkers paths.

Combining Na Gruagaichean and Binnein Mor with Binnein Beag and Sgurr Eilde Mor at the eastern end of the Mamores range, makes for a fine day's outing on a circular route using stalkers paths.

For fit hikers and hill-runners, here is also the option of bagging Na Gruagaichean as part of a complete Mamores traverse (or even a longer Tranter's Round or Ramsay's Round).
