Beinn Fhada (or Ben Attow)

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Fhada is a mountain of great bulk. Whilst it may lack the graceful ridges elsewhere in Kintail, an ascent reveals its true character and complexity, with some magnificent 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.

Public Transport

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. Traveline Scotland.
