Sgurr nan Ceannaichean

Located on the south side of Glen Carron, within the Glencarron and Glenuig Forest in the Ross and Cromarty district of Highland Council, Sgurr nan Ceannaichean rises to a height of 913m (2995 feet). The summit is flat with a number of cairns, though the most southerly one is the true peak. It has a steep west face with two impressive gullies. Its name originates from Gaelic and means "peak of the merchants or pedlars".

Sgurr nan Ceannaichean was promoted to the status of a Munro in 1981 after its height was recalculated at 915m (3002 feet). However, in 2009, its height was again reviewed using modern GPS methods and the mountain was reduced once again to the status of a Corbett.
