Other routes and challenges

Beinn Dearg Bheag and Beinn Dearg Mòr are usually climbed as a pair, making one of the most spectacular and challenging Corbett outings; they are also extremely remote.

The other main approach is via Shenavall bothy; this is shorter but involves a great deal more ascent and descent to reach the bothy, and then a serious river crossing.
