Baosbheinn, near Gairloch
This fine sandstone mountain, a Corbett, has great character. Baosbheinn is a magnificent viewpoint both for the higher Torridon mountains and over the sea to the islands.
Pathless with some boggy sections and a couple of stream crossings that would be difficult in spate. Steep ground but no real difficulties on the ridge.
Inverness- Gairloch bus service.
Car park by the green barn half a kilometre east of Loch Bad an Sgalaig.
