Ladhar Bheinn from Inverie, Knoydart
Regarded by many hillwalkers as amongst the finest mountains in Scotland, Ladhar Bheinn enjoys a superb position on western seaboard in the remote Knoydart peninsula. It has dramatic ridges, huge crags falling into Coire Dhorrcail and amazing sea and mountain views from the summit.
Rough walking; initial ascent is up pathless slope with high bracken in summer. The ridge is rough with a few short scrambles but these are not exposed.
Boats are available from Mallaig to Inverie including Western Isle Cruises. (Mallaig has a train station).
