In my quest to climb every Munro individually (and by an alternative route) I set my sights on the hills accessible from Glen Torridon.
Setting off from the SMC's Ling Hut we followed the track southwards, at around 480m there is a small cairn, the OS map shows that the path doglegs to the northeast, in reality the path continues south.
Leave the main path at the small cairn and head southeast, Beinn Liath Mhór should come into view behind a small ridge (Sáil Gharbh), either walk around or over the ridge .
The rough Torridonian sandstone changes to sharp quartz blocks, it's an easy scramble so you reach the summit cairn quickly.
Follow the same route back, alternatively follow the track over onto neighbouring munro Sgorr Ruadh.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
