Beinn Damh (or Ben Damph)

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Straightforward and popular route to this Corbett with fine views over Torridon, the length of Loch Damh and the islands. The route can be extended to take in Sgurr na Bana Mhoraire which has good views over Loch Torridon and Beinn Alligin. The first part of the route is through lovely Scots Pine woods with glimpses of waterfalls and is on a finely constructed stalker's path.


Excellent stalkers path to begin with, becoming eroded on the steeper slopes to the ridge. From here the path is indistinct but easy to follow in clear conditions over grassy and then stony ground with quartzite rocks on the final ascent..

Public Transport

None to start.


Car park at Torridon Inn or limited parking on the road near the bend. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
