About Beinn Eighe

Beinn Eighe is one of the Torridon Hills in the Highlands of Scotland. Standing at an elevation of 1,010 m (3,314 ft), it has a prominence of 632 m (2,073 ft) and has a complex topology, providing many attractive walks and climbs for outdoor enthusiasts. Two of its summits are classified as Munros: Ruadh-stac Mor (the highest point) and Spidean Coire nan Clach (993 m / 3,258 ft). However, one of its most notable geological features is the corrie known as the Triple Buttress Corrie, or Coire Mhic Fearchair.

These three huge rock features are prominent in views from the north and provide numerous rock climbs. At the eastern end of the main ridge is a run of pinnacles called the Black Carls, which are good ground for scrambling. On the northern side, there is a National Nature Reserve, the first area in Britain to receive this designation.

The rocky peaks and ancient pinewoods provide important habitats for a huge diversity of wildlife, including crossbills and golden eagles. A network of well-maintained trails provides access to visitors to some of the plant and wildlife.
