Moruisg is easily reached from the A890 so can provide a useful short day if passing through Glencarron. Moruisg is usually combined with Sgúrr nan Ceannaichean, a Corbett, to its south west.This track is a record of a hike which combined both hills. Plenty of parking at a layby on the A890 at NH 080 520. The layby is on the right when travelling from Craig, on the left when travelling from Achnasheen.
There is a gate at the layby and the path beyond the gate leads to a bridge over the River Carron and then on to an underpass under the Dingwall to Kyle of Lochalsh railway line. The land between the railway line and the hills is wet and wearers of leaky boots may suffer. The ascent of Moruisg is quite straightforward. The route passes through a fenced off, conservation area and then ascends steep grassy slopes to the summit ridge. There is a large cairn at NH 1029 5019 but the true summit is at NH 1012 4993, marked by a much smaller cairn, approximately 315m south west of the large cairn.Large cairn approximately 315m northeast of small cairn that now marks the Munro

After visiting the summit cairn the route continues south west, then south, then south west again, around Coire Toll nam Bian to a col above Coire an Tuill Bháin, then on to the summit area of Sgúrr nan Ceannaichean.Sgúrr nan Ceannaichean from the SW slopes of MoruisgBidein an Eoin Dearg, Sgúrr a'Chaorachain and Sgúrr Choinnich viewed when approaching the col between Moruisg and Sgúrr nan Ceannaichean

After visiting the summit cairns, the ascent route is retraced for about 500 metres before a descent along the north ridge to the Alltan na Feóla which is crossed. The path then follows the Alltan na Feóla through the fenced off conservation area. After leaving the conservation area, the path back to the railway underpass is very wet and boggy in places, especially where All Terrain Vehicles have churned up the path.
