Beinn Odhar Bheag and Beinn Mhic Cedidh

Beinn Odhar Bheag & Beinn Mhic Cedidh

Routes on the Corbetts above Loch Shiel and Loch Eilt

West of Loch Shiel the rugged hills of Beinn Odhar Mor, Beinn Odhar Bheag and Beinn Mhic Cedidh are typical of the Moidart peninsula. Grass and rush covered lower slopes lead to delightfully undulating terrain with occasional rocky outcrops.

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 and Beinn Mhic Cedidh, there is a feeling of remoteness and adventure, even though you're never far away from the main road or railway connecting Mallaig with Fort William.
