Bac an Eich
Bac an Eich is the highest point in a rectangle of land encircled by stalking paths which provide access from Inverchoran to the NE and Scardroy Lodge to the N both in Strathconon.

The summit of Bac an Eich lies close to its steep NE slopes,and there are ridges NW (An Leth-chreag), SE to Sgurr Toll Lochain and W turning NW to Creag Coire na Feola (770m).

From the summit there are easy slopes down to Loch na Caoidhe in the S and W to Drochaid Coire Mhadaidh either of which offers an easy ascent route.

Baosbheinn and Beinn an Eoin are two elongated mountains flanking Loch na h-Oidhche in the Flowerdale Forest, and consequently are climbed together.

Baosbheinn rises gently from Gorm-loch Fada in the SE to Ceann Beag (705m) then more steeply over an un-named top to the summit (875m). From here the ridge descends to a col then ascends to the NW top (801m) and finally descends to Creag an Fithich (738m).

Baosbheinn is steep and craggy on its W side but the E face has three spurs producing four corries, some very craggy.

Beinn a' Bha'ach Ard
Beinn a' Bha'ach Ard lies on a ridge which curves round a high corrie, Coire Mheadhoin, and is located W of the corrie. The most E top on the ridge is Carn na Gabhalach (713m) and a path ascends to this top from Inchmore.

This path continues W to Sgurr a' Phollain (855m). From here the ridge continues SW to an un-named top (835m) and finally SSW to Beinn a' Bha'ach Ard with its craggy S slopes. Carn an Sgoltaidh (520m) with its equally craggy slopes terminates the E rim of the corrie.

This hill is best taken as a traverse of the corrie rim from Carn na Gablhach, but to reduce the route length an ascent of Beinn a' Bha'ach Ard can be made from the path by the Neaty Burn to the SW.

Beinn a' Bhuiridh
Beinn a' Bhuiridh is part of the Ben Cruachan group, lying to the S of Stob Diamh connected to Stob Garbh by a col (730m), and logically should be included in the Cruachan route. However it is an imposing hill in its own right, with beautiful views down Loch Awe, and makes for a good shorter day out.

Beinn a' Bhuiridh has one long ridge to the E, but otherwise is a compact hill. The slopes to the S are easy to moderate but quite rocky above Lochawe village. To the N the slopes are steeper and more craggy, particularly close to the summit.

Ascent is not difficult, with access possible from Drishaig up the E ridge, from Stob Garbh to the N, and from Cruachan Dam.

Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor
Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor is a large sprawling mountain with some steep craggy slopes, particularly to the S and W. It has a broad summit, generally with easy inclines above 650m, with the exception of the W face where the steep slopes of Coire Carn na Saobhaidhe rise almost to the summit.

Beinn a' Chaisgein Mor is a very remote mountain with a single logical approach route from Poolewe to Kernsary then along the southern margin of Bad Bog and over the causeway between Fionn Loch and Dubh Loch to Carnmore. A stalkers path then takes you to the easy E slopes.

You may wish to combine this mountain with A' Mhaighdean and or Ruadh Stac Mor .

Beinn a' Chaisteil [Auch]
Beinn a' Chaisteil and Beinn nam Fuaran are sister peaks, on the E side of Gleann Ach'-innis Chailein, connected by a col (545m), and are climbed as a pair.

Beinn a' Chaisteil, the more S of the pair, is composed of two ridges in an "L" shape. The S and W upper slopes are very rocky, but the hill can be climbed via the SE or NE ridges with ease on moderate slopes.

Beinn a' Chaisteil [Strath Vaich]
Beinn a' Chaisteil lies to the E of Am Faochagach across Loch Vaich. It is the larger and more northerly of two tops on a long ridge running N-S. The second top Meall a' Ghrianain is attached via a 650m col.

Beinn a' Chaisteil is a big grassy hill but with some steepish slopes particularly on its E flank. The approach road through Strath Vaich continues N on the E shore of Loch Vaich and takes you to Carn Crom-loch (648m) the N end of Beinn a' Chaisteil's long ridge. This hill should be taken as a ridge walk.

Beinn a' Chlaidheimh
Beinn a' Chlaidheimh is a remote peak 3km N of Sgurr Ban with rivers to the W, N and E protecting it like a moat.

It can be climbed with Sgurr Ban using the path from Loch a' Bhraoin, but the more usual access route is from Corrie Hallie to the N following the track to Achneigie on the N banks of the Abhainn Loch an Nid. However, you then have to cross an unbridged river going in and out and the water level in Highland rivers can rise significantly in a day.

Beinn a' Chlaidheimh is elongated and slightly curved with easy slopes on the E rising to moderate slopes with craggy outcrops nearer the summit (this is the usual ascent route). To the W the slopes are steeper and much more craggy.

On the 9th of August 2011 The Munro Society revealed that they had surveyed the height of Beinn a' Chlaidheimh to be 2998ft using the latest in GPS surveying technology. On the 6th of September 2012, the SMC confirmed that Beinn a' Chlaidheimh is now classed as a Corbett.

Beinn a' Choin
Beinn a' Choin is the highest peak in a group of hills bordered by Glen Gyle, Glen Arklet and Loch Lomond.

This mountain group is in the form of and inverted "Y" with the two southern ridges linking to Maol Mor (684m) and Stob an Fhainne (655m) enclosing Corrie Arklet. Both these ridges offer suitable access routes.

These are rough hills with many crags and rocky outcrops but they offer few obstacles to climbers as they can mostly be avoided. There is no parking on the road, but the farm may allow parking if asked.

Beinn a' Chrulaiste
Beinn a' Chrulaiste and Buachaille Etive More sit either side of the A82 forming the E gateway to Glen Coe.

Beinn a' Chrulaiste has three main ridges, the largest runs N, curving E to the twin topped Meall Bhalach, the second largest runs W to Altnafeadh where there is parking, and the third ridge runs ESE providing an ascent route from the Kings House Hotel.

The S and NW slopes of Beinn a' Chrulaiste are steep and craggy, and there are crags NE of the summit, however an ascent via the W or ESE ridges will avoid these crags.
