Beinn Alligin means the Mountain of Beauty or Jeweled Mountain - and it lives up to the name. This is the easiest of the three famous Torridon ridge traverses, with spectacular views and stunning terrain. It includes a traverse of the Horns, which offer reasonably straightforward summer scrambling.
There is a good path for the whole distance, but the going is steep and mountainous throughout. The route just merits grade 5 for the airy but reasonably straightforward scramble over the horns and the steep final descent.
None to start.
