Travelling along the road from Loch Kishorn to Shieldaig, the impressive coires of Beinn Bhan dominate the view westwards. There are five coires in this chain, with the Beinn Bhan's summit standing above the finest of these, Coire na Poite.

Beginning from the bridge over the River Kishorn, a hike up grass and heather clad slopes lead to wide crests above the impressive cliffs of north-east facing coires which are then followed onward to Beinn Bhan's summit.

This route can be extended from Beinn Bhan westwards and over nearby Sgurr a' Chaorachain to form a longer circular route travelling above Coire nan Arr.
