Ladhar Bheinn

Located in Knoydart - the most inaccessible region in Britain. From road head at Kinlochhourn about 20KM to base of mountain. Much easier is to cross Loch Hourn by canoe from Arnisdale. Don't underestimate its 1040 meters; you start with your feet in Scotland's most impressive fjord reaching the summit via a knife edge ridge. The continuation around Coire Dhorcaill is unforgettable. Ladhar Bheinn is one of the finest peaks in Scotland.

Watch out for Golden Eagles and Munro Baggers.- Paul RiordanLadhar Bheinn rises almost directly from sea-level. The mountain is impressive and remote. Its summit has cliffs falling away on the north and east sides, and has a great view of the most steep and rocky peaks of Britain: the Cuilin of Skye. Most of the time it is a walk up, but some mild scrambling along an exposed ridge. - Frank Verwijs

    What a wonderful expedition. The delightful walk from Kinloch-hourn, hugging the shore of Loch Hourn - lake of Hell, to Barrisdale. An oasis of green in the wonderfully wild and rock-strewn Knoydart....
