Beinn Alligin and its Horns

  • Distance – 10 km (6 miles)
  • Ascent – 1160m (3,800 feet)
  • Time – 7-8 hours
  • Munros – Beinn Alligin /Tom na Gruagaich (hill of the damsel) and Sgurr Mhor (big peak) plus the horns.

Interestingly this is often seen as one of the easier Torridon mountains, but think again. Altough the two Munros are easy enough the scramble along the ‘Horns of Alligin’ is a challenging undertaking. The Horns can fortunately be bypassed by those not wishing such a thrill. However these hills are not to be underestimated.

There are great views from here west to the Cuillin ridge of Skye and east to the infamous Torridon peaks.

All our guides carry emergency shelters, first aid kits, paper and electronic navigation equipment and know how to use them. Prices for a guided Munro day can be found on our Prices Page.
