Binnein Mor is the highest mountain in the Mamores and sits near the eastern end of the range, surrounded, and linked to, smaller Munro peaks. There is a minor Munro Top to the south of the main summit.

With a drop of only 100m between Binnein Mor and nearby Na Gruagaichean, these two Munros are often walked together from Kinlochleven to the south, using fine stalkers paths.

Binnein Beag and Sgurr Eilde Mor lie just to the east of Binnein Mor, and though the drop to these is more significant than that with Na Gruagaichean, they can be added in to a day, making for a fine outing on a circular route.

For fit hikers and hill-runners, here is also the option of bagging Binnein Mor as part of a complete Mamores traverse (or even a longer Tranter's Round or Ramsay's Round).
