Beinn Dearg Mor and its lower neighbour Beinn Dearg Bheag are undoubtably amongst the finest of the Corbetts. The pair require a very long day and a river crossing to reach.

Other routes and challenges
Beinn Dearg Bheag and Beinn Dearg Mor are usually climbed as a pair, making one of the most spectacular and challenging Corbett outings; they are also extremely remote. As a day walk, the approach from Gruinard given above is extremely long but avoids any serious river crossings; the route can be amended by including the scramble over the north ridge of Beinn Dearg Beag if required.
The other main approach is via Shenavall bothy; this is shorter but involves a great deal more ascent and descent to reach the bothy. After fording both rivers this route then climbs very steeply up the lower slopes to reach the corrie south of the summit.
