Garbh Bheinn is a magnificent mountain which would attract great attention were it not in competition with the other Skye peaks. Part Red Hills granite, and part Black Cuillin Gabbro, it offers fine, fairly straightforward scrambling and sensational views.
Region: Isle of Skye
Altitude: 808 metres

The alternative to the above horseshoe is a second one from Loch Slapin to the southeast. Sgurr nan Each and Belig complete the horseshoe from this side, which has more challenging scrambling than the northwestern route (see trip report from clivegrif).
