Beinn Talaidh, via Glen Forsa

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Talaidh was once Mull's second Corbett, before being demoted to Graham status. It is a steep-sided grassy peak, isolated from its neighbours by very low bealachs, and at the heart of the peaks of Mull it gives excellent views. This ascent via Glen Forsa to the north gives a longer approach but probably more enjoyable than the direct ascent from the A849 to the south.


Good approach track, with ford. The hill itself is pathless, with very steep grass slopes lower down and stonier but more gradual ascent higher up.
