The bulky mountains of Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mòr 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 Mhòr 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.
