Beinn Resipol

Beinn Resipol sits in the heart of Sunart, just south of Loch Shiel. A fine peak by any measurement, and on clear days, its solitary position ensures fine views from its summit in all directions.


Main route summary


Some effort is required to reach the summit, but a well constructed track heading in from the south-east cuts down the time taken, particularly if a sturdy bike is used.

There is a race held up this hill, a rough fast blast in early September.

Supplies can be bought at the village of Strontian, well positioned at the foot of Beinn Resipol, where other facilities include camping, pubs and restaurants.
