Beinn Fhada - DESCRIPTION

Beinn Fhada is a large massif of a mountain stretching almost 10km from Strath Croe in the NW to Glen Affric in the SE. The southern face is steep for the entire length of the ridge dropping to Kintail Forest and the hills of Glen Shiel. The northern face is a different story with no less than 9 corries biting into the length of the ridge. These give rise to some fantastic gullies and ridges running north to Gleann Gniomahaidh. These are well seen from Munros further north in Glen Affric. The summit ridge has a large number of tops but the true summit sits about half way along perched on the northern edge overlooking Coire Toll a Mhadaidh and Coire Thuill Sgailceich. A walk along the entire summit ridge is a must and makes for a fantastic walk. As long as you stay away from the northern corries there are no technical difficulties.

On the western end of the summit ridge a separate ridge runs north to subsidiary peak Meall a Bhealaich and on to Beinn Fhada's neighbouring Munro A Ghlas-bheinn, this on itís on would be a fantastic Munro but is seriously outclassed in everyway by the fantastic Beinn Fhada

Access is normally via Morvich to the west of the ridge just off the A87. From here there are easy paths up onto the west end of the ridge at Sgurr a Chore Ghairbh. This is a superb walk so make sure you save a good day of weather for it!
