Ben Hee
Ben Hee is a large mass of winding ridges and 4 distinct tops, rising from the E shore of Loch Merkland. The summit overlooks a large corrie cut into its E slopes, and much of Ben Hee's eastern slopes are steep and rocky.

From the summit ridges run NE to an un-named top (851m) where it branches to form 3 minor ridges; W to Sail Garbh (677m) then NW turning W to a smaller unnamed top (582m); and finally SW to Meallan Liath Mor (683m) turning SE to Meallan Liath Beag (503m).

Sail Garbh has a rocky corrie on its N face, but the Meallan Liaths are crag free with moderate slopes.

Ben Ledi
Benvane and Ben Ledi are the two highest tops on a mountain that runs SE to NW on the western shore of Loch Lubnaig. These two hills can therefore be climbed in a single traverse if transport can be arranged.

Ben Ledi has crags on its E slopes and a few near the summit but otherwise this is a grassy hill which is forested on its E and W slopes.

The shortest and most frequently used route is from the head of the Pass of Leny to the E, but an ascent is also possible from Brig O' Turk to the S via Gleann Casaig.

Ben Rinnes
Ben Rinnes is located in the Northern Grampians NE of Grantown-on-spey.

Ben Rinnes is a solitary peak which broadens on easy inclines to the W but narrows to a well defined ridge to the E. This ridge has moderately steep slopes, but a track ascends onto Round Hill (its most E point) and from there a path leads to the summit. This is the logical ascent route.

Ben Tee
Ben Tee is part of the Sron a' Choire Ghairbh group and lies to the N of Coire Glas separated from Meall a Choire Ghlais by a bealach (545m), a drop of 350m.

Logically Ben Tee should be climbed as part of the circuit of Coire Glas, but an approach is possible from the N on forest tracks if you wish to climb it alone.

Ben Tee is a steep sided mountain, with boulder strewn S slopes and craggy N slopes. It has two ridges N to Bac an Laogh and ENE which offers the easiest slopes which can be reached from Kilfinnan at the NE end of Loch Lochy. The path from the N leads to the steeper W slopes where an ascent is possible with care.

Ben Vrackie
Ben Vrackie is a very popular hill overlooking Pitlochry and offers magnificent views. It is an irregular hill, rough and craggy in places, although the ascent from Moulin is very straight-forward.

Ben Vrackie has several ridges; a main ridge runs NE then N to Meall Breac (696m) and this has an E spur to Carn Geal (776m); a second main ridge runs NW to Meall an Daimh (722m) and this has a SW spur to Meall na Moine. All ridges are craggy in places.

Ben Vuirich
Ben Vuirich is a broad sprawling hill with very gentle and potentially boggy slopes to the S and W, but steeper slopes to the N and crags to the E at Carn Dubh (868m).

Ben Vuirich has a short craggy ridge to the E and a long forked ridge running S to Craig Chlacharnach (695m) and Carn Liath (609m).

Benvane [Loch Lubnaig]
Benvane and Ben Ledi are the two highest tops on a mountain that runs SE to NW on the western shore of Loch Lubnaig. The two hills can therefore be climbed in a single traverse if transport can be arranged.

Benvane is a grassy hill with few rocky outcrops and an easy ascent. Benvane is best accessed by its long N ridge either from Ballimore to the N or via the tracks which climb its forested E slopes.

Bidein a' Chabair
Bidein a' Chabair is a rough rocky mountain with steep slopes and crags, lying in a relatively remote location on the edge of the Knoydart National Scenic Area.

It has a single ridge, the Druim Coire nan Laogh, running from Meall na Sroine WSW to Bidein a' Chabair then W over Sgurr na h-Aide (859m) to join Sgurr nam Meirleach at a high col (672m).

Bidein a' Chabair is normally climbed from the E via the path to Strathan. Due to its remote nature, this is not a frequently climbed hill and you should be prepared to do your own route finding through the crags.

Braigh nan Uamhachan
Braigh nan Uamhachan, one of the smallest Corbetts, lies to the E of Gleann Dubh Lighe opposite Streap .

It is the highest point on a well defined ridge running NNE from Na h-Uamhachan (691m) over Sron Liath (683m) and Braigh nan Uamhachan, beyond which the ridge turns E to Gualann nan Osna (542m) which connects to Gaor Bheinn .

Braigh nan Uamhachan is usually ascended via its long SSW ridge from Gleann Dubh Lighe.

Breabag
From the A837 to the W, Breabag appears as a broad flat topped hill, whereas its E slopes are carved into steep cliffs falling into three large corries overlooking the River Oykel and its tributaries.

Breabag lies on an L shaped ridge which runs 3.8km NNE to a bealach which separates it from Conival and 3km SE to Sgonnan Mor overlooking Loch Ailsh.

The lack of access paths makes a traverse of this long ridge difficult but there is a track into the glen to the E of the river Oykel and footbridges over the river which could make it possible.

An ascent to the col between Breabag's two highest peaks via the path to the caves on Beinn an Fhuarain offers the easiest ascent.
