Beinn Fhada is a bulky mountain with no sign of the graceful ridges elsewhere in Kintail. However an ascent of the mountain reveals its true character and fine northern corries.
A stalkers path gives a fairly straightforward route to the plateau, but crossing the plateau itself requires good navigation skills. The alternative descent involves a slabby scramble; in wet weather it should be avoided and the ascent route retraced.
There is a reasonable bus service along the A87, served by Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness. Ask to get off at Allt a'chruinn, which is two kilometres from Morvich.
Please note that hillwalking in winter conditions - which is whenever there is snow lying - requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly, and to judge which routes are safe for the conditions and your party in winter. Please see our Winter Essentials for details.
