Beinn Dhubh, Losgaintir
Beinn Dhubh and its neighbour Beinn Losgaintir appear unremarkable, rounded hills from a distance. However their superb position overlooking the Luskentyre Sands on the one hand, and the mountains of North Harris on the other, ensures they make for a shorter hillwalk with sensational views. A tough route for Grade 3.
Pathless hillwalking. Ascent up broken slabs and easy ground along the summits; some boggier terrain lower down and a steep descent.
Bus service between Tarbert and Leverburgh to start of Losgaintir road
