Fionn Bheinn

The furthest north on our list, the beautiful Fionn Bheinn is a five-hour train ride from the central belt

So often overlooked, Fionn Bheinn offers an easy ascent and magnificent views on a summer’s day. Many walkers drive past heading for the more majestic mountains of Torridon, but this Munro is definitely worth stopping for.

You can access this remote Munro from Achnasheen, a small station on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh line.

The walking route is to be found on the opposite side of the A832 to the station. Look for the red phone box.

The first train arrives at Achnasheen for 10.18am, while the last return train is 6.25pm. This should give plenty of time for the out-and-back 7.5 mile route.

It’s a steady climb that can be a bit boggy in wet weather so you might be wise to reserve this Munro for the summer.

The vistas widen as you climb and include the easily identified profile of the Munro of Slioch, in Torridon, to the north-west of Fionn Bheinn. Meanwhile a group of mountains known as the Fannichs provide an eye-catching vista to the north and east.

From the summit you might be fortunate to see the dinosaur-back ridge of the Cuillin mountain range on the isle of Skye.
