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.

Terrain

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.

Public Transport

Regular bus service between Ullapool and Inverness.

Start

Car park south of Inver Lael bridge on A835 just north of house on east side of road. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
