When it comes to mountains, size isn’t everything. Lowly Beinn Ghobhlach packs a punch in terms of prominence. Sitting alone on the peninsula separating Loch Broom from Little Loch Broom, its relative bulk and rocky summit ridge command the sort of respect usually reserved for mountains much taller. This is a pretty rough walk over largely pathless terrain that reflects Beinn Ghobhlach’s remoteness. You are unlikely to see many people up here. What you will see, provided the clouds stay high, are spectacular panoramas down the peninsula and out to sea with the Outer Hebrides beyond. The views sweep north to Coigach and Assynt, round to the Ullapool hills, and further south to An Teallach and the Great Wilderness beyond. Be prepared though; this relatively small mountain makes you earn the views.
