Bidein a' Chabair from Loch Arkaig

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Bidein a' Chabair is a remote Corbett on the rugged fringes of Knoydart, requiring a long approach. The summit is a fine sharp rock peak and commands superlative views.


Good track for approach (a mountain bike would be useful to the bridge over the River Dessary), then pathless going. Boggy ground and a burn crossing is followed by a steep, tussocky grass slope and then a convoluted, complex, rocky and rough ridge with a final simple scramble to the summit.
