Rois-Bheinn is one of three Corbett peaks in the north-western corner of Moidart and overlooks Loch Ailort. The other two nearby Corbetts are Sgurr na Ba Glaise and An Stac, all three forming a compact group connected via grassy bealachs and ridges.

The most direct approach up Rois-Bheinn is from Roshven Farm to the west, from where a rough track leads up the hillside to some hydro-works. Higher up, faint paths lead onto Rois-Bheinn's summit crest, where an old wall can be followed.

Views from Rois-Bheinn's large cairn on its western peak out to the isles of Eigg, Rum, Skye and beyond are quite outstanding.
