Creach Bheinn and Fuar Bheinn

Kingairloch Corbett circuit

Routes on Creach Bheinn and Fuar Bheinn, west of Loch Linnhe

Overlooking Loch Linnhe, the two fine Corbett hills of Creach Bheinn and Fuar Bheinn, along with the lower peak of Beinn na Cille, form a rugged horseshoe circuit above the few houses and farm at Kingairloch in Morven.


Main route summary


  Map base ©OpenStreetMap
Creach Bheinn can easily be reached by a slog from the highest point on the Glen Tarbert road that leads to Strontian. However, to combine this with Fuar Bheinn and enjoy the hills to the fullest, the approach from Kingairloch to the south is recommended.

The views from the summit crests of these hills, and Creach Bheinn in particular, are stunning in all directions, looking as far as Jura, Rum, Skye and beyond.
