Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor, via Carnmore from Poolewe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor is a truly remote mountain, well hidden from most roads at the very heart of the great Fisherfield Forest. It can be approached from Gruinard to the north but the route given here makes use of the superb stalkers paths leading to the dramatic causeway between Fionn Loch and the Dubh Loch near Carnmore. Most walkers will opt to either wildcamp near the causeway, or use the very basic shelter at Carnmore Stable. Cycling is also a good option with easy approach as far as the woods above Kernsary, then muddy track and single track suitable for MTB to Fionn Loch.


Track, then excellent stalkers path all the way to the bealach below the final slopes. Above this the final slopes are pathless and rough.
