This route covers a Fionn Bheinn which is munro from [The Fannaiches] group geologically but lies to the south of Loch Fannich so must be climbed alone from the little village of Achnasheen on the A832. This ascent of Fionn Bheinn is merely a stroll up a grassy mound due to it's gently rolling grassy slopes on south side, the northern steeper side is hidden from the majority of visitors.

Some people save this munro for one of those bad weather days.
