Beinn Dearg - the Four Munros circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Dearg is the highest of this round of four fine Munros; remote Cona Mheall is on the opposite side of impressively rocky and wild Coire Ghranda whilst Meall nan Ceapraichean and Eididh nan Clach Geala give a good traverse with views across towards Assynt.


An excellent approach walk but higher up there are boulderfields and steep scree.
