The long crest of Beinn Fhionnlaidh is guarded on north and south faces by rocks and crags, approaches are therefore best made from Invercharnan to the east in Glen Etive or Glenure Farm to the west.

Depending on approach, there's some rough terrain likely to be encountered. There are a couple of short and easy scrambling pitches on the crest just east of the summit.

Due to the close proximity of Beinn Fhionnlaidh to Loch Linnhie and Loch Etive, a day's hiking to the mountain's summit will reward hillwalkers with superb views.
