Bla Bheinn (Blaven) - DESCRIPTION

Blaven (or Bla Bheinn) is the only Munro on Skye out with the Cuillin ridge but it is still a fantastic Munro. It stands tall above its surrounding neighbours known as the Red Cuillins being the only one high enough to be a Munro. The main summit lies at the end of a long ridge running SW to NE swinging out like a lizard’s tail. It starts from Camasunary bay in the SW and pulls steadily up. At the main summit Blaven is joined by ridges to two smaller hills. These produce an array of corries of which northern corrie Coire Uaigneich is the normal route of ascent. A well marked path climbs to the summit. There are many opportunities for scrambling especially if you wish to extend your trip to take in Clach Glas which is a smaller peak to the NE of Blaven. This section should only be attempted however if you are a confident scrambler.

From its isolated position Blaven is a brilliant vantage point to take in the main Cuillin ridge at its best. From here you can truly appreciate the complexity of these Munros. There is also uninterrupted views towards the small isles and out to sea. The hills on Rhum look particularly fine.

There is a bothy available at Camasunary Bay if you wish to make an expedition of it.
