Beinn Dhubh and its neighbour Beinn Losgaintir appear unremarkable, rounded hills from a distance. However their superb position overlooking the Luskentyre Sands on the one hand, and the mountains of North Harris on the other, ensures they make for a shorter hillwalk with sensational views. A tough route for Grade 3.


Pathless hillwalking. Ascent up broken slabs and easy ground along the summits; some boggier terrain lower down and a steep descent.

Public Transport

Bus service between Tarbert and Leverburgh to start of Losgaintir road.


Around 400m along the Losgaintir branch road off the A859. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
