After re-measurement in 2011, Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was demoted from Munro status to the Corbett list after re-measurement. It is however a fine hill, much more interesting than Moruisg, its broad crested Munro neighbour.

There are various ways to gain Sgurr nan Ceannaichean's summit, for instance directly from Craig to the west via some steep clambering, or from Pollan Buidhe up a fine stalkers path. The most popular approach is however to combine it with nearby Moruisg from the roadside near Loch Sgamhain.
