Hill features

Foinaven falls twelve feet short of the required 3,000ft for Munro status - and all the better for it!

Foinaven is a range in itself, offering an abundance of wild and characterful terrain to explore. That said, the track down Strath Dionard has somewhat tamed that wild feeling though does offer an easy approach, particularly with bikes. But the mountain's location at the extremity of the northern mainland will hopefully ensure its quiet demanour remains intact. The scale and complexity of some of the cliffs only becomes apparent once you are stood beneath them. There is a lifetimes worth of exploring to do here - assuming you are not easily spooked by loose or unstable rock!
