Sail Mhor sits solitary above Little Loch Broom and the moorlands surrounding Badcaul and Badluachrach. As an outlier of An Teallach, Sail Mhor's domed shape is a little surprising given the jaggyness of its neighbours.

The most direct approach up Sail Mhor is from the A832 above Little Loch Broom, however as the hill has craggy northern faces, a detour will be needed, which will involve heading around the back of the hill and climbing up the easier southern slopes.
