Beinn Airigh Charr, from Poolewe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The fairly long but straightforward ascent of the Corbett, Beinn Airigh Charr is rewarded by fantastic views in all directions, whetting your appetite for longer expeditions into the Letterewe and Fisherfield Forest wilderness areas to the north or the Torridon mountains seen beyond Loch Maree. The route as described returns via Loch Kernsary, but it can be shortened by retracing by the outward route.


Minor road, track, rough path then open moorland to summit, no difficulties.
