Buidhe Bheinn, from Kinloch Hourn

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This fine Corbett rises steeply above Kinloch Hourn and provides one of Scotland's classic views, along Loch Hourn to Ladhar Bheinn. Excellent stalkers paths make this an enjoyable ascent, and the ridge between the two peaks is very rocky and rugged. NOTE: Road to Kinloch Hourn currently closed until mid 2019 - no vehicular access to start of this route.


Excellent stalkers paths for approach and return; upper part of hill is pathless, rocky and rugged.
