Sgurr Mhor (Beinn Alligin)

Instantly recognisable for a reason that’s difficult to pin down, the twin-Munro massif of Beinn Alligin is one of Scotland’s great free-standing peaks, launching from the Torridon landscape with equal spectacle as nearby monsters Liathach and Beinn Eighe. A decapitated cone of horizontal sandstone ledges over Torridon’s characteristic, vertically-plunging precipices, the precipitous crescent ridge leading from Tom na Gruagaich is hill-walking at its most awe-inspiring. 

Best route: a complete traverse, clockwise from Coire Mhic Nobuil.
