Beinn Dearg is a remote solitary Munro lying to the north of Glen Bruar. It is the most western Munro in this section and typical of the Grampian Munros in that it has a rounded summit. The summit lies at the high point on an elongated summit plateau running SW - NE. Continuing NE after the summit leads to 2 subsidiary tops. The south ridge runs to another subsidiary top before dropping sharply to the valley floor. This is a popular route of ascent, as is the western face of the mountain rising from Glen Bruar. Both offer small amounts of crags but nothing too technical.
Beinn Dearg as mentioned is a remote Munro with a long walk in from any direction. The most common approach is from the south at the Falls of Bruar just off the A9. There is a long walk in through Glen Bruar to either of the above mentioned ascent points but there is the option of cycling some of the distance.
Overall Beinn Dearg may not be the best Munro Scotland has to offer but it does offer nothing short of an expedition to get to it which gives it a great remote wilderness quality that is missing from from a lot of the other Munros.
