Routes up the Corbett Beinn Damh near Torridon

On the southern side of Loch Torridon, Beinn Damh towers above coniferous and Scot's Pine forests. Heather clad slopes lead to grass and boulderfields with the conspicuous "Stirrup Mark" to the south west of the summit - a semi circular area of white quartzite surrounded by grey rock seen most clearly from the south.


Main route summary


The finest route up this mountain begins from the Torridon Inn, where parking is available and is an excellent place to return to relax and mull the day over a pint. The path cuts its way through rhododendrons and Scot's pines, passes a spectacular waterfall and leads walkers out onto open hillside where the hulk of the mountain presents itself.

To most fit walkers, bagging this Corbett peak will be an afternoon's jaunt and an easier alternative to the nearby Torridon Munros when they are being battered by rain and wind.
