Beinn Liath Mor – 23 March


A great ridge walk in the beautiful area of Strath Carron and Coulin Forest. A walk over mixed terrain with some steep sections, getting you on top of a fantastic munro.

Places available



The walk starts at Achnashellach train station. After the approach a steep push brings us on top of the main ridge with fantastic views out in all directions. With most of the climbing now done, easier high ground brings us across to the summit cairn of Beinn Liath Mor. We carry on for the descent and return through Coire Làir.
