Sgurr na Ba Glaise is a rugged hill in the north-western corner of Moidart sitting at the head of Glen Moidart. Linked by a grassy ridge to Rois-Bheinn to the west, these two Corbetts along with An Stac a short distance to the north, form a compact group of hills.

A fine route up Sgurr na Ba Glaise begins from Loch Ailort and takes in nearby An Stac and Rois-Bheinn. To the north is Inverailort and Glenshian Lodge and an approach from this direction could allow Sgurr na Ba Glais's north-eastern neighbour Druim Fiaclach to be including in an itinerary - not a Corbett, but as its name suggests (meaning 'toothed ridge'), something quite interesting !
