Buidhe Bheinn is a very rugged mountain rising to the north of Kinloch Huorn. For many years it was regarded jointly as a Corbett with Sgurr a Bhac Chaolais in Kintail, since surveys had both at the same height, though the drop between them is not enough to justify making them two separate Corbetts. A survey in 2012 revealed that Buidhe Bheinn is the higher; it is a magnificent viewpoint, particularly the western top which is erroneously marked at 897m on some OS maps.
Region: Fort William
Altitude: 885 metres

Kinloch Huorn is the usual starting point as described. An alternative is to combine the hill with Sgurr a’ Bhac Chaolais for an ascent from Kintail – but this is a long expedition as the linking ridge is tough going.
