Beinn Iaruinn
The summit ridge of Beinn Iaruinn runs SW to NE. The SE slopes are steep with unusual shelves known as the parallel roads, which are believed to be the shorelines of an ancient loch. The NW slopes on the other hand have a more gentle incline.

Coire nan Eun is cut into the summit ridge of Beinn Iaruinn so much that the summit overlooks the corrie. An ascent is possible up the steep SE slopes, but an ascent from Glenfintaig (to the SW) will give an easier ascent.

Beinn Lair
Beinn Lair lies on a range of hills running NW to SE on the NE shore of Loch Maree. The A832 road is only 5km away, but on the other side of Loch Maree, so unless you can arrange a ferry to Letterewe (we do not know if this is possible) then you have a very long walk in.

The path from Kernsary to Polt Fraochain offers the nearest approach and from here an ascent is possible via Bealach Mheinnidh which avoids the steep craggy NE face. The other faces of this hill offer easier slopes with only scattered rock outcrops but there are no access paths.

An approach from the Kinlochewe end of Loch Maree is possible, but even longer.

Beinn Leoid
Beinn Leoid is a remote mountain in a high wild moorland setting with many lochans. The summit cone approximates to a triangular pyramid with ridges extending on three sides; NNW to Sail na Slataich (652m), W to Creag an t-Sniomha and E to a bealach connecting to Meallan a' Chuail (750m).

A path ascends to this bealach from the N making this the normal ascent route. Some steep slopes and crags mainly on N face.

Beinn Liath Mhor a' Ghiubhais Li
The summit of Beinn Liath Mhor a'Ghiubhais Li, one of the smaller Corbetts, lies 2.5km from the A835 road on the S side of Loch Glascarnoch close to its W end.

Given that you start from 265m this is a short route, and the slopes are easy and accessible by walkers of any ability.

Beinn Luibhean
The summits Beinn Luibhean and Beinn Ime lie 1.4km apart separated by a 679m col. Consequently it is difficult to see this as a separate mountain, but as an outlying top which is best climbed with Beinn Ime.

It is an uncomplicated grassy hill with steep slopes on its SW face but otherwise moderate slopes and the top has many rock outcrops. If you want an easy day out then climb it from the "Rest and be thankful" (260m) on the A83 road.

Beinn Maol Chaluim
Beinn Maol Chaluim is an elongated hill S of Bidean nam Bian. It consists of a high ridge 1.4km long, running NW-SE, curving N at the NW end and S at the SE end.

It has a craggy NE slope, but is normally ascended from the S on easy to moderate grass slopes without encountering the more difficult terrain.

Beinn Mheadhonach
Beinn Mheadhonach is a long narrow hill, sandwiched between two deep glens, Gleann Diridh and Gleann Mhairc. Its lateral slopes are much steeper to the S, although the long S ridge offers an easy ascent.

It has two tops with Beinn Mheadhonach lying in the middle of the mountain mass and Carn a ' Chiaraidh (870m) to the N. To The N it opens onto high undulating moorland with no easy approach route.

Beinn Mhic Cedidh
Beinn Mhic Cedidh is a simple hill with one long ridge winding N to Sgurr na Paite (323m) overlooking Loch Eilt. This ridge which is at times narrow and rocky is the most suitable ascent route.

The only approach route to this hill is the A830 road to the N and you will be obliged to make at least one un-bridged river crossing. Do not expect a well trodden path up this ridge!

Beinn Mhic Chasgaig
Beinn Mhic Chasgaig has two main ridges running W and NE plus a short ridge SE connecting to Creise via a col (695m). This hill has steep slopes, frequently with exposed rock.

The approach from the W where there is a bridge, is often barred by a locked gate and one is faced with crossing the river with its attendant risks or a long walk in from Kingshouse.

If coming from the bridge, then the track/path S into Coire Ghiubhasan makes an ascent to the SE ridge the preferred route. If walking in from Kingshouse then the NE ridge gives an easy ascent.

Beinn Mhic Mhonaidh
Beinn Mhic Mhonaidh sits between Glen Strae and Glen Orchy. An ascent from Glen Strae is possible but the River Strae has no bridge and crossing may be difficult.

The Ascent from Glen Orchy is partly on forest road but then on rough vehicle tracks, therefore careful navigation required.

Beinn Mhic Mhonaidh is elongated into a single ridge orientated SW to NE. It has moderately steep slopes with rock outcrops and stony slopes. Good route finding can avoid these obstacles.
