Beinn Dearg from near Blair Atholl

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The remote position of Beinn Dearg makes for a long hillwalk, although the terrain is straightforward in good summer conditions making for fast walking. The views are extensive and with a different route for the return the route makes for an enjoyable day.


Good landrover track for the approach and return, hill-paths on higher ground, with a short boggy stretch on the ridge. The route is, however, exposed and long.

Public Transport

None to Old Bridge of Tilt; Blair Atholl buses and trains only a kilometre away.


Old Bridge of Tilt car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
