Beinn na h-Uamha

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This rather neglected hill lies in very heart of Ardgour. Beinn na h-Uamha may only just scrape Corbett status, but it exhibits the great ruggedness characteristic of the area, with steep rocky slopes and grand views across Loch Linnhe and of nearby Sgùrr Dhònuill and Garbh Bheinn.


Approach walk along a rough landrover track. There is no bridge across the River Gour, and the crossing may be impossible in spate. The ascent itself is pathless, steep and rugged.

Public Transport

None to start.
