Flat-topped Munro overlooking Glen Carron

Overlooking Glen Carron and Glen Uig, Moruisg is a rather unassuming Munro hill with a flat top on which it couldn't be decided where to put the cairn !

Grassy slopes above Glencarron rise to the long crest and flat top of Moruisg, a slightly less characterful hill compared to neighbouring mountains.

Most people will opt to hike up Moruisg from the A890, and with nearby Sgurr nan Ceannaichean being demoted, return down the same way. But they'd be missing out, as Sgurr nan Ceannaichean is a more interesting hill !

From Glenuaig Lodge to the south of Moruisg, a slightly more attractive approach uses stalkers paths zig-zagging up grass and heather-clad slopes to within 1km of the summit.
