Possibly the least distinctive mountain overlooking Glen Torridon, Sgorr nan Lochain Uaine is the high point and abrupt ending of a long and wide lochan-pitted moorland running south from Sgurr Dubh.

Compared to its Munro neighbour Beinn Liath Mhor, which stands on the opposite side of Lochan Uaine, Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine is a fairly infrequented mountain. There are no obvious paths to the summit, giving a feeling of wilderness and testing navigation skills.

Routes up Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine

Coulin Forest from Glen Torridon

I'd guess the most popular route up Beinn Liath Mhor and Sgorr Ruadh approaches from Achnashellach. An approach from Glen Torridon however allows the Corbetts of Sgurr Dubh and Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine to be added into a route with the Munros without too much additional effort.
