Beinn nan Aighenan, Glen Etive

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn nan Aighenan is the forgotten Munro of the Starav range, being hidden away from Glen Etive by an intervening ridge. The usual route of ascent to this rocky summit is over the ridge, however, as any alternatives involve a very long approach.


Most of the route is on a path, but muddy in some parts, rough and rocky in others.

Public Transport



Rough parking by start of Coiletir track. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
