Description

An Sgurr is the highest point on the island Eigg, located on the Scottish west coast. The summit is only accessible via one route unless you're prepared to climb, and the whole mountain has a beautiful shape from where the ferry lands east of the summit. The summit offers excellent views towards Askival and the other mountains on Rhum, and the Skye Cuillins can also be seen in the distance.
