Hill features

This Corbett (otherwise known by the Gaelic name Beinn an Aodainn) is one of the hardest-to-reach of all Scottish summits.

The well-defined rocky NNE Ridge bounds a large broken N face with lots of easy rock slabs but no lines. S Face has a rough spur on its RH side with one good scramble and scope for short harder routes. A long way from anywhere, and an achievement by any route.

Approach notes

Feasible to come in for the day from the head of Loch Quoich but quite a trek, with the possibility of difficult river crossings. Barrisdale and the head of Loch Nevis are other possible start points, the latter the shortest but you've got to get there first!
