Beinn Liath Mhor, Achnashellach
Beinn Liath Mhor takes the form of a long ridge sprinkled with white quartzite screes. It gives a fine, steep hillwalk of much character.
Excellent stalkers' paths on the approach walk; higher up the mountain has steep boulders and heather, whilst the ridge is on quartzite scree. There is much rough ground and crags to avoid on the descent.
