Detailed route description and map

Beinn nan Aighenan from Glen Etive

Other routes and challenges

The mountain can also be included as a detour from the Ben Starav and Glas Bheinn Mhòr route. Adding on a further two Munros - Stob Coir' an Albannaich and Meall nan Eun would make for an epic challenge.

The longer, Glen Kinglas route to Beinn nan Aighenan starts at Forest Lodge. A track leads up the Abhainn Shira and then crosses a low pass into upper Glen Kinglass. The eastern slopes of Beinn nan Aighenan above here are pathless and very steep.
