Beinn Airigh Charr, from Poolewe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The fairly long approach to Beinn Airigh Charr is well rewarded by some of Scotland's most magnificent views, whetting your appetite for longer expeditions into the Letterewe and Fisherfield Forest wilderness areas to the north or the Torridon mountains seen across Loch Maree. The route is described as an out-and-back walk, but the return can be varied by heading round the north side of Loch Kernsary.


Minor road, track, rough path, indistinct and boggy in places. Short steep and loose section before summit.
