Details for Bidein a'Choire Sheasgaich

Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich is the central peak of a mountainous arc around the western tip of the remote Loch Monar and appears in all directions as a pyramidal peak due to the three ridges that meet at the summit. The summit point is marked with a rather modest cairn. Bidein a' Choire Sheasgaich is one of the remotest munros on the south side of Glen Carron and arguable the finest looking peak as it's pretty craggy in all directions. Lurg Mhor is situated on the south-east connected by the Bealach an Sgoltaidh (740m) and is usually climbed on the same days outing.

Usual access is from the northern ridge which connects to Beinn Tharsuinn (863m) which looks pretty daunting being very craggy. You need to look for a stone wall and scramble upto a grassy gully that slants up to the right avoiding any difficulties.

On lovely day with good visibility you can see out to the Cuillin of Skye in the distance on the west.
