Munros starting with L
|Ladhar Bheinn is a wonderful craggy mountain on the remote Knoydart Penninsula. It is a large and complex mountain with many ridges and corries. |
The summit ridge runs NW to SE where it intersects, at an altitude of 849m, a much longer ridge from Sgurr Coire Choinnichean in the SW to Creag Bheithe in the NE.
Ladhar Bheinn can be access via this ridge by ascending to the bealach, Mam Suidheig, and traversing the narrow Aonach Sgoilte ridge to reach the main ridge.
From the summit a craggy ridge runs NE, the Druim a Choire Odhair which offers an ascent route from the path to Barrisdale into Coire Dhorrcail.
Further major ridges NE turning NNW to Mullach Li (668m) and NW to An Diollaid. A descent from the lochan on the NW ridge SW on grassy slopes leads to paths in Gleann na Guiserein.
Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuide
|Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuide is the highest top on Ben Avon, which is a very large and complex mountain sprawling over more than 30 square kilometers. |
The summit plateau is dominated by granite tors, one of which forms the summit, but it is an easy scramble.
From the broad summit plateau, ridges lead in almost every direction, allowing access from Tomintoul to the N via Glen Avon, from Beinn a' Bhuird to the W and from Gleann an t-Slugain in the S. To the E of the summit lies the massive Garbh Choire with its rocky cliffs and the routes from the S and W take you close to corrie rim.
|Luinne Bheinn is a steep sided and rocky mountain in the remote Rough Bounds of Knoydart. It's summit ridge has two tops, the summit to the W and the East Top (937m). The N slopes of Luinne Bheinn are complex with many ridges and corries. |
At the summit three ridges converge, the NW ridge to Mam Barrisdale being the usual ascent route. A further three ridges converge at the East Top, a broad craggy NE ridge, a narrow E ridge to Mam Unndalain from where a path leads to Barrisdale Bothy, and a SSE ridge which forms a col with Meall Coire na Gaothe'n Ear leading to Meal Buidhe.
|Lurg Mhor is an elongated mountain (E to W) with twin peaks, the summit being the W top. From the summit a ridge leads W to broad col (740m), which connects to Bidean a' Choire Sheagaich and is the normal approach route. |
The longest ridge, Meall Mhor, slopes down to the E reaching the shores of Loch Monar 5km from the summit. A traverse of this ridge involves scrambling.
There are minor ridges on N slopes, and to the S three ridges lead to Loch Calavie and the path to Pait Lodge. The more central of the S ridges has easy slopes but the SE ridge is narrow and craggy.
