Detailed route description and map

Beinn an Oir via Loch an t-Siob

The Paps of Jura

Other routes and challenges

Beinn an Oir can be climbed as part of the classic round of the three Paps of Jura - a very demanding route with rugged terrain and steep scree.

It can also be climbed singly, which still involves an extremely boggy approach, but uses a natural ramp across the east side to avoid the worst of the screes.
