To the west of Glenfinnan, Beinn Odhar Bheag is the highest point on a ridge overlooking the north-western shores of Loch Shiel.

The most accessible point to gain access to the lower slopes of Beinn Odhar Bheag is from the high point on the A830 a few miles to the west of Glenfinnan.

A route up Beinn Odhar Bheag will most likely go via Beinn Odhar Mhor and these hills are in an unfrequented area where there are no paths, old walls or rusty fence-posts to follow and aid navigation. Once up Beinn Odhar Bheag, there is a feeling of remoteness and adventure, even though you're never far away from the A830 or West Coast railway line connecting Mallaig with Fort William.
