Sgrr a' Choire Bheithe
Sgrr a' Choire Bheithe is typical of the Rough Bounds, being an east west long ridge with very steep sides with deep glens on either side. The landforms are due to erosion from glaciers falling off a central icecap. Often the slopes have failed, without the scaffolding of ice, they have slumped in huge landslides with fissures, mounds etc. A good example is the chaos in Glen Pean. Sgrr a' Choire Bheithe used to be subject to munro scares, when rumours spread that it was resurveyed over 3000' and it experienced periods of popularity. The issue is now settled.
