Blà Bheinn - Isle of Skye Map

The classic route to reach the summit of the munro 'Blà Bheinn' in Isle of Skye.


Route goes to summit, and down the same way.

Beautiful 360° view over the Red Cuillins, Black Cuillins and the (almost) entire length of the Highlands.

Relatively straightforward hike, with some scrambling halfway and at the top. (Scrambling grade 1 when choosing the easy routes).

Scrambling halfway can be avoided. We scrambled on the way up, but not on way down (see map here, at approx 2.1. miles from start)

Did this in winter conditions. Crampons advised in this case.



Hiking challenging trails where simple scrambling, with the occasional use of the hands, is a distinct possibility. The trails are often filled with all manner of obstacles both small and large, and the hills are very steep. Obstacles and challenges are often unexpected and can be unpredictable.
