Bidein a'Choire Sheasgaich and Lurg Mhor

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A challenging expedition to climb two of the remotest Munros. The fine, pointed summit of Bidein a'Choire Sheasgaich would be more celebrated were it not hidden deep in the wilds of Monar, whilst neighbouring Lurg Mhor is even more inaccessible. The walk can be broken up by an overnight stay in the bothy or wild camping.

Terrain

A long but good approach track leads to Bendronaig Lodge - this has been widened and smoothed for hydro works and could be done by mountain bike, though the first ascent is long and steep. Beyond there is a stalkers path to Loch Calavie and along the ridge between the peaks, but the rest of the route is very rough and pathless. A serious expedition, far from help, requiring experience of wild country.

Public Transport

Attadale train station (request stop Inverness-Kyle line) short walk along A890 from start.

Start

Parking just off the A890 at turning for Attadale Gardens. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
