Binnein Beag is a remote little mountain on the Mamores range and sits at the eastern end of Glen Nevis. The lower slopes of this dome-shaped peak are clad in heather, above which rough rock and scree need to be tackled to gain the summit.

If tackling Binnein Beag on its own, the easiest route is probably to come in from Glen Nevis along a fine path which leads to the north side of this Munro, from where a heathery slog gains the summit.

However, being part of the Mamores, most hilllwalkers will want to bag other Munros while visiting Binnein Beag and there are various routes to choose from. I'd recommed the circular route aiming from Kinlochleven - this delights with high-level crests, while taking in the four eastern Mamores Munros.
