Beinn Dearg - the Four Munros circuit
Beinn Dearg is the highest summit on this fine round of four Munros. The second peak, remote Cona Mheall, is on the opposite side of impressively rocky and wild Coire Ghranda whilst Meall nan Ceapraichean and Eididh nan Clach Geala extend the route to give a grand traverse with spectacular views across towards Assynt.
Forest track and then a fine stalkers' path for the approach (and return) - but higher up there are pathless sections and much rocky, rough terrain to cross.
Regular bus service between Ullapool and Inverness.
Car park south of Inver Lael bridge on A835 just north of telephone box on east side of road.
