Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mor, from Glen Feshie

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The bulky mountains of Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mor are well out of sight and probably out of mind from Glen Feshie. In good weather, however, they can be climbed via a long high-level traverse over the Moine Mhor plateau.


This route crosses a vast and featureless plateau at a high altitude, and is extremely exposed to bad weather and difficult to navigate in poor visibility. Given good conditions the going is mostly good apart from the final ascent to Beinn Bhrotain over boulders.

Public Transport

None to start.
