Beinn Dearg Mor and Beinn Dearg Bheag, from Gruinard

Beinn Dearg Mor and Bheag rise across Loch na Sealga from mighty An Teallach, but are in no way overshadowed by their famous neighbour. These magnificent peaks have dramatic rock architecture, a very remote but spectacular location, and superlative views; they rank amongst not just the finest Corbetts but amongst the finest of all Scotland's mountains.


Landrover track to Loch na Sealga, then rough path above loch. Pathless up into corrie; steep ground with boulders and scree on the hills.

Public Transport

None to start.


Start of track up Gruinard River at NG961911. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
