Summary

This majestic Applecross mountain really deserves far more renown. Beinn Bhan has dramatic fluted corries on its eastern flanks which look fantastic from the easy walk along the plateau edge giving this route the drama of the Torridon mountains without the exposure or need for scrambling; the views are simply stunning. The steep (but grassy) descent on the circular route can be avoided by returning from the summit by the outward route.

Terrain

There is no path for most of the moorland route but the going is reasonably straightforward. The descent from the plateau is on very steep grass followed by a moorland trudge down to the stalkers' track and finally a minor road towards the end of the walk.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start
