Beinn a' Bha'ach Àrd

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A long and fairly strenuous horseshoe taking in the summit of Beinn Bha'ach Àrd (862m) a Corbett with good views over the Beauly and Moray Firths and into the Affric, Strathfarrar and Strathconon glens and their surrounding mountains. The walk can be shortened by returning from the summit the same way. NOTE: There are sometimes stags in the field crossed on the return route - take care in the Autumn or return by outward route.


Minor road and track initially, then rough and boggy terrain with no clear path for ascent and descent; ridge gives conditions underfoot.

Public Transport

No public transport to the start of the walk.


Car park at Inchmore just before the Glen Strathfarrar gate at Milton Cottage near Struy. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
