Beinn Eighe

Beinn Eighe Mountain Trail






The Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve has this well constructed footpath
which allows less experienced walkers to visit higher and rockier regions that would normally be out of bounds.

Allt na h-Airidhe burn The path follows this burn up through the dense birch and pine woodland


The path climbs steadily and you soon leave the birch trees and come to an area of open pine woodland. Pines

When you cross this bridge the path gets much steeper and rockier so if in doubt turn back here. Bridge
