Beinn an Oir, via Loch an t-Siob

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

If the complete round of the Paps of Jura is too challenging, the ascent of Beinn an Oir on its own makes for a more amenable hillwalk with little scree, though the approach is very boggy. The reward is truly spectacular views of the remarkable Paps, and out over the surrounding sea and islands.


Very boggy approach, then some pathless moorland walking. The ascent of Beinn an Oir by this route is steep and a little stony in places, but mostly has a path and gives much easier going than elsewhere on the Paps.
