Beinn Resipol
Beinn Resipol is an isolated mountain virtually on its own peninsula, with Loch Sunart to the S and a chain of fresh water lochs connecting to the sea to the N.

Beinn Resipol is a very craggy mountain, particularly on its N slopes, and its slopes are fairly steep in places. An old path originally used by lead miners gives access to the E ridge which offers an easy route to the top.

Beinn Spionnaidh
Beinn Spionnaidh and Cranstackie are two hills in the same group and are connected by a col (565m) so that they are always climbed together.

The closest access is from the A838 at Carbreck to the NW where a track leads to the slopes below the col. An ascent is also possible from the A838 at the head of Loch Eriboll to the SE but this route up gentler slopes shows nothing of the more rugged nature of these hills.

Both hills have scattered rock outcrops and crags but these are easily avoided.

Beinn Stacach
Beinn Stacach (sometimes misspelt as Stacath) is un-named on OS mapping and is marked only by a trig point and its elevation (771m). It takes its name from a feature south-east of the summit called Bealach Stacach which appears only on OS 1:25k mapping. The hill is also sometimes referred to as Stob Fear–tomhais, possibly translating as Surveyor's Peak.

It lies at the intersection of three ridges, N to Ceann na Baintighearna (701m), ENE towads Balimore, and S to Beinn Bhreac (687m).

The grassy top of Beinn Stacach has few crags and is an easy walk. The northern slopes are forested, and although forest tracks go to within 1.8km of the summit they are not generally used for access. The shortest route avoiding forests is from Ballimore to the E, however, the Road on the N side of the Calair Burn cannot be used as it leads into the fenced enclosure of a deer farm, and the route to the S necessitates wading across the Calair Burn.

A longer but drier approach is possible from Glen Finglas to the SE.

Beinn Tarsuinn [Arran]
Arran's 4 Corbetts are sufficiently close to one another to be climbed together, but Goatfell is popular as a single peak and is described separately.

The three remaining peaks lie on a long winding ridge that starts with Beinn Nuis (792m) then goes N to Beinn Tarsuinn , Cir Mhor and finally Caisteal Abhail .

Beinn Tarsuinn is a rough rocky hill with three main ridges, SSW to Beinn Nuis, SE to Beinn a' Chliabhain (653m), and NNE is the impressive A Chir ridge which is too difficult for hill-walkers, but a path on its W slopes avoids this problem. There is also a short broad NW ridge.

There are paths on the SSW, SE and NNE ridges that provide ascent routes for Beinn Tarsuinn.

Beinn Tharsuinn [Monar]
Beinn Tharsuinn and Sgurr na Feartaig are two mountains of almost identical height sitting either side of Bealach Bhearnais and therefore can be climbed together. However, Beinn Tharsuinn is normally included in the route to Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich and Lurg Mhor .

Beinn Tharsuinn is a compact mountain of three ridges; NNE, SE and W with the summit lying close to the intersection of these ridges. The slopes are fairly steep, with scattered rock outcrops and crags, but the ascent from Bealach Bhearnais is not difficult and the ascent from Bealach an Sgoltaidh is steep but easy.

Beinn Trilleachan
Beinn Trilleachan dominates the western shore at the head of Loch Etive.

Beinn Trilleachan is a steep sided hill with the summit at the confluence of its two ridges, NE and SSW. For the hill-walker the safest approach is to follow the path by the forest edge at Gualachulain onto the NW ridge. This ridge requires some scrambling and sections offer a degree of exposure.

This hill is famous for its huge inclined granite slabs which lend themselves to friction climbing.

Beinn Udlaidh
Beinn Udlaidh and Beinn Bhreac-liath lie NW of Tyndrum in a triangle of land bounded by the A85, A82 and the B8074.

Beinn Udlaidh is a compact hill lying E-W with two ridges on its northern slopes. Apart from the E section of the S slopes, Beinn Udlaidh has craggy slopes, but in places routes can be made through the rocky outcrops with ease.

The normal ascent routes are from Invergaunan on the B8074 or from Beinn Bhreac-liath .

Ben Aden
Ben Aden and Sgurr a'Choire-bheithe are two remote Corbetts in the Rough Bounds of Knoydart and tend to be climbed together. The possible approaches are a long walk in from Kinloch Hourn, or by boat to Inverie and another long walk so be prepared to stay one or more nights.

By either route you will find yourself faced with unbridged river crossings. Accessing these hills is a serious undertaking requiring good judgement and careful navigation.

These are rough craggy hills which are seldom climbed and you may have to select your own route through the rocks and crags. However with good route selection you should not face more than minor scrambling.

Ben Donich
Ben Donich is a square pyramid with its summit at the centre of four ridges. The slopes are moderate, and terrain is mainly grass with some rocky outcrops on steeper slopes.

Ben Donich can be accessed by any of its four ridges, but is almost surrounded by forest. The normal approaches are via forest tracks in Glen Croe which give access to the NE and SE ridges.

Ben Donich is sufficiently close to the Brack, for them both to be climbed in a day.

Ben Gulabin
Ben Gulabin is a compact hill, with moderate to steep slopes, overlooking the Spittal of Glenshee.

The hill has a few scattered crags, but as a path leads to the col between Creagan Bheithe and Ben Gulabin, they should not be encountered.
