Beinn Alligin

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

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.

Terrain

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.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Car park on west bank of Abhainn Coire Mhic Nobuil. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
