Beinn an Eoin and Baosbheinn, the Flowerdale Corbetts

To the north of Torridon, the wonderfully hidden area of Flowerdale Forest awaits to be explored.


Main route summary


A fine but rough track (cyclable for at least 8km of the journey) aims in from the north to gain Loch na h-Oidhche from where a circular route over grass, heather and occasional boulderfields bags these two Corbetts. The effort is rewarded with stunning views from the summit crests.

If you fancy spending some quality time in here getting to know the hills more intimately, then backpacking into the area is recommended. Note that the remote bothy in the heart of the area at the southern end of Loch na h-Oidhche is now closed and used by Gairloch Estate private parties only.
