Other routes and challenges
Beinn an Òir 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.
