Beinn Mholach
Beinn Mholach is the the more easterly top of 3 on a ridge running E-W, the others being Beinn Bhoidheach (790m) in the centre and an unnamed top (683m) to the W. From the two more westerly tops a ridge runs N to Glas Mheall Mor (830m).

Beinn Mholach is the most rugged of these peaks with crags above 650m in most directions. The slopes are generally easy but steeper in a few places, N of Glas Mheall Mor and SE of Beinn Mholach. <>Beinn Mholach is normally climbed with Stob an Aonaich Mhoir and the pair can be accessed from Loch Rannoch to the S or from Dalnaspidal Lodge on the A9 to the NE.

Beinn na Caillich
Beinn na Caillich is located at the W end of the Knoydart peninsula. It's main ridge runs SW to Meall Coire an t-Searraich (686m) where it broadens to mainly easy or moderate slopes with only a few crags offering an easy ascent from Gleann na Guiserein.

At the Beinn na Caillich end of the ridge, the slopes are steeper and much rockier but even here routes can be found through the crags.

The Carn Dubh ridge offers a possible route from the path in Mam Li.

Beinn na h-Eaglaise
Beinn na h-Eaglaise lies just E of Beinn Sgritheall separated by the Bealach Arnasdail (600m) so an extra 200m of ascent is all it would take to climb both.

However, Beinn na h-Eaglaise sits on the W rim of Coire Dhruim nam Bo and the high level walk round the corrie rim to Beinn nan Caorach captures a second Corbett.

These are relatively steep sided hills with crags and boulder slopes, but it is not difficult to find safe routes through these obstacles.

Beinn na h-Uamha
Beinn na h-Uamha is rough rocky hill lying between Glen Gour and Strontian Glen to the S and Gleann Mhic Phail to the N. The hill can be accessed from Strontian or Sallachan, but the latter is closer and has the advantage of a track on the S side of the River Gour (N.B. un-bridged river to cross).

Beinn na h-Uamha has three main ridges running NE to Meall nan Ruadhlag (431m), SE to Stob an Uillt Dharaich (462m) and W via a 555m col to Sgurr a' Chaorainn - from where a spur runs SE to Sgurr na Laire (624m).

This is a very rocky hill with moderately steep slopes but can be climbed without scrambling.

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

Beinn nam Fuaran, the more northerly of the two, is a conical hill with some crags on its N and W slopes. The summit is steep sided but crag free, and is not difficult to ascend.

Beinn nan Caorach
Beinn nan Caorach sits on the E rim of Coire Dhruim nam Bo and the high level walk round the corrie rim from Beinn na h-Eaglaise captures a second Corbett.

These are relatively steep sided hills with crags and boulder slopes, but it is not difficult to find safe routes through these obstacles.

Beinn nan Imirean
Beinn nan Imirean is essentially an outlying top of Meall Glas to which it is connected by a broad col (660m).

Beinn nan Imirean is a triangular top with ridges to the N, SW and SE, the latter with a minor top ,Meall Garbh, offering the logical approach route from Auchessan. This Corbett is not worthy of a separate ascent and should be climbed with Meall Glas .

Beinn nan Oighreag
Beinn nan Oighreag is approximately triangular in outline, with three main ridges; S to Carn Shionnach; NNE to Creag Dubh (633m) and N with spur to the W. Parts of the eastern slopes, and the whole of the upper S ridge are rocky.

Approaches are possible from Moar to the NNW in Glen Lyon; from the minor road to the E linking Glen Lyon to Loch Tay via the NE ridge; and from Glen Lochy via the old drovers road leading to the Lairig Breisleich. The latter is the more popular ascent.

It would be possible to combine an ascent of this hill with Meall Ghaordaidh .

Beinn Odhar
Beinn Odhar has four short ridges forming corries on its N, E and S faces. Of these ridges, only the SE is of any length as it turns S 4.2km to Creag Bhan Eigheach.

All ridges can be ascended and there are few crags other than in Coire Luaidh on the N face.

Beinn Odhar Bheag
Beinn Odhar has two main tops, the central Beinn Odhar Mhor (Mhor meaning larger) at 870m and the larger Beinn Odhar Bheag (Bheag meaning small) at 882m. You may wish to drop into the hotel bar in Glennfinnan and ask the locals what they were drinking when they named these peaks.

Beinn Odhar is a complex hill with multiple radiating rocky ridges to the SE, E and NE. To the W of the twin peaks lies Coire Buidhe which lies between the NW ridges of the two tops. It is these ridges which offer the best ascent routes.
