Bidein a' Ghlas Thuill is the highest summit of magnificent An Teallach, and despite being less dramatic than neighbouring Sgurr Fiona it is the best viewpoint on the mountain and one of the most dramatic in Britain. Usually tackled as part of a complete ridge traverse, it can equally well be climbed on its own.
