Beinn na Caillich, from Inverie
Beinn na Caillich is the most westerly of Knoydart's main hills, and is perhaps the Corbett furthest from the UK road network. The ferry to Inverie, however, makes it into a daywalk of reasonable length. The summit plateau is uncharacteristic of Knoydart, but the distant views are superb.
Landrover track for approach and return, and stalkers' path up to the Allt Mam Li. Between is pathless with some rugged ground.
Ferry to Inverie from Mallaig.
Inverie, Knoydart peninsula.
