But he rather set the spooky tone! This is the easiest route. Luinne Bheinn (939m, Munro 236) Meall Buidhe (946m, Munro 223) Ladhar Bheinn (Larven) (1020m, Munro 111) Corbetts: Sgurr nan Eugallt* (898m) Sgurr a'Choire-Bheithe* (913m) Sgurr Choire Choinnichean* (796m) Beinn na Caillich* (785m) Beinn Buidhe* (855m) *See 'Alternative Routes' below : Ascent: 3650m (12,000ft) Distance : 43km (27m) Time So many hills in so many directions. We applied the usual Scottish hillwalking criterion that if it is difficult to spell, it is often difficult to walk over. Short of 23km on some steep ground. You’d be surprised how often this works – I mean, we were going to end up in a glen spelt ‘gleann’. After an airy scramble we finally made it to the impressive horseshoe, or rather hoof like, corrie Dhorrcail on the Eastern flank of Ladhar Bheinn. In the picture above, we have come up the shallow but steep (and tedious) Coire Garbh and have been rewarded by increasingly fine views asa we turn on to the broader slopes of the summit approach. All right, I can hear the hoots of derision from the hardened walkers and hill stravaigers – but it was getting late, honest. The six Munros featured in this route are – Meall Buidhe, Luinne Bheinn, Ladhar Bheinn, Sgurr na Ciche, Garbh Chioch Mhor and Sgurr nan Coireachan.

It is a large and complex mountain with many ridges and corries. The Mainland's most westerly Munro, Ladhar Bheinn might rise straight from the sea, but unless you happen to own a boat then it occupies a surprisingly hard-to-get-at location on the fabled Knoydart peninsula. The most rewarding route is via the winding path along the southern shore of Loch Hourn. The summit ridge runs NW to SE where it intersects, at an altitude of 849m, a much longer ridge from Sgurr Coire … The mountain's topography is complex with many spurs, corries and summits and not a place to be lost in mist !

Anyway, back on the route…afterwards, the guidebook advises that the route to Ladhar Bheinn should be continued eastwards and upwards, with great views in all directions, especially to remote Loch Hourn. You and Tommy will be fine going up there, but I would recomend ascending via Mam Barrisdale "path" and hooking right at the top.

Anyway, the view here looks is well west of the main summit of Ladhar Beinn (if you approach from the south, as we did), with views opening out south-east towards the Small Isles – Eigg is on the left. The islands of Rum and Eigg from Ladhar Bheinn. The views from the top look great.
