Triple Buttress of Coire Mhic Fhearchair

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Compared to the majesty of Liathach, Beinn Eighe looks less impressive from the road - an enormous and uninviting scree-girt ridge. Hidden away from the traffic however is its finest feature - the magnificent Coire Mhic Fhearchair, one of the finest corries in Scotland. A popular and straightforward hillwalk reveals the classic view of the towering Triple Buttress reflected in the waters of a beautiful lochan.


Excellent stalkers path all the way to the lochan with a rocky surface. Note that this walk is tough for Grade 2 and heads into wild and exposed terrain.
