Beinn Bhan

Other routes and challenges

The fittest baggers may link Beinn Bhan with its neighbour, Sgùrr a' Chaorachain, via the Bealach an Arr. This is most easily achieved using an out-and-back route from the Bealach na Ba. A clockwise circuit of both hills is also possible for scramblers with good route finding skills - necessary for ascending the southeast ridge of Sgùrr a' Chaorachain (do not attempt in descent).
