Luinne Bheinn or "The Looney Bin" as it is infamously known is a truly remote Munro lying right in the rough bounds of Knoydart to the south of Loch Hourn and Barrisdale. There are two tops to Luinne Bheinn the western top being the true summit. The two are connected by a knobbly craggy summit ridge encircling Coire Glas. There are deep drops to both the north and south.
From the east another craggy ridge runs initially south round the rim of Coire Odhair before heading south west to the summit of neighbouring Munro Meall Bhuidhe, these two are normally climbed together.
From the summit of Luinne Bheinn fantastic panoramic views can be achieved in all directions but in particular north to Loch Hourn and the fantastic Ladhar Bheinn.
This is a remote Munro that will involve a long walk in from any direction. It can be tackled from either Inverie to the SW or Barrisdale to the NE. Inverie has the benefit that you can make an expedition of it and take the boat in from Mallaig which runs twice a day. Either direction should result in a fantastic walk as Luinne Bheinn is one of Scotland’s best Munros.
