Detailed route description and map

Aonach Beag, Geal Charn, Beinn Eibhinn and Carn Dearg from Culra

Other routes and challenges

Beinn Eibhinn could be ascended from Corrour Lodge on Loch Ossian, accessed via the railway to Corrour Station - but this would be less convenient for the other peaks on the ridge.

An alternative approach to the whole ridge of four Munros is from Luiblea near Moy Lodge on the A86 to the north.

The whole area is ideal for remote cross-country backpacking expeditions. One idea is to undertake a traverse from Corrour Station to Dalwhinnie Station - with plenty of options for Munros to include.
