Beinn Damh from the south

Beinn Damh

Corbett peak south of Loch Torridon

Beinn Damh towers above the Scots Pine forests surrounding the southern shore of Loch Torridon. It is a fine mountain, smaller in scale compared to its neighbouring Munro mountains, but no less dramatic.

On the southern side of Loch Torridon, Beinn Damh towers above coniferous and Scot's Pine forests. Heather clad slopes lead to grass and boulderfields with the conspicuous "Stirrup Mark" to the south west of the summit - a semi circular area of white quartzite surrounded by grey rock seen most clearly from the south.

To most fit walkers, bagging Beinn Damh will be a jaunt of just a few hours, leaving time to hike other peaks in the day. Beinn Damh is also a fine backup option when a planned hike in the nearby Torridon Munros is thwarted due to poor weather conditions on these higher peaks.
