Sgùrr Eilde Mòr is a Scottish mountain situated in the Mamores range, 6 kilometres north-east of Kinlochleven. It is a steep, conical peak of scree and quartzite boulders, capped with a layer of schist. With a height of 1010 m (3314 ft) it is classed as a Munro, so is popular with hillwalkers. It is most commonly climbed from Kinlochleven by way of a stalker's path which leads to a col at Coire an Lochan, and then by either the south or the west ridge - both routes involving an ascent of steep, bouldery terrain.
