Beinn Bhan, Glen Loy

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This straightforward Corbett makes a good short day out. The ascent is something of a treadmill but is rewarded by a plateau traverse on perfect springy turf with superb views to Ben Nevis, Loch Arkaig, Loch Lochy and all the surrounding mountains.


Straightforward climb on easy going ground with a path for the first section and then pathless. Navigation skills needed for the plateau in bad weather, descent mostly pathless heather.
