Beinn na Caillich rises impressively above Broadford, it's forbidding steep slopes of rock and scree deterring it from becoming a more popular ascent. That first steep pull is rewarded with some fine ridge walking and truly stunning 360 degree views.


Boggy approach and return. Very steep and bouldery initial ascent, easier ridgewalking above, but with a steep scree descent to negotiate.

Public Transport

None to start. Buses to Broadford 4km from start.


Old Corry minor road end, near Broadford. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
