Beinn Alligin means the Mountain of Beauty in Gaelic - and is well named. This is the easiest of the three famous Torridon ridge traverses, but if the Horns are included it still gives some airy scrambling.
There is a good path for the whole distance, but the going is steep and mountainous throughout. The route just merits grade 5 for the airy but reasonably straightforward scramble over the horns.
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.
