When travelling through Drumochter Pass, Beinn Udlamain can be glimpsed between The Boar of Badenoch and The Sow of Atholl. At 1011m, Beinn Udlamain is the highest mountain in the group of Munros west of Drumochter Pass, with a large untidy cairn, partially built with old fence posts, marking the top of its long and wide summit crest.

Beinn Udlamain lies between A'Mharconaich and Sgairneach Mhor connected to them at cols above 800m, it therefore makes sense to include Beinn Udlamain in a day Munro-bagging with these Munros and Geal-charn to the north.

Terrain is fairly easy underfoot, with a fair amount of the route following tracks, paths and fence-posts. The Munros in this group all have different characters and afford good views over Loch Ericht to the Ben Alder range and beyond, though due to Beinn Udlamain's vast flat summit, you'll need to detour from the cairn for the best views.
