Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
805 m (2641 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

Beinn na h-Eaglaise lies just E of Beinn Sgritheall (Munro) 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 (Corbett) 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.

Hazards you may encounter on Beinn na h-Eaglaise include
 Steep slopes on or near ascent routes.
 Stony/rocky Slopes on or near ascent routes.
 Crags on or near ascent routes.
 Crags near summit.
General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.
