Beinn na Lap is a long whaleback shaped mountain in the remote area around Loch Ossian. If accessing this mountain from Corrour Halt, Beinn na Lap is considered to be one of the easiest Munros summits to bag as not only is there a mere 500m to climb, but there's a pretty good path all the way.

Possibly the most enjoyable hike up Beinn na Lap the circular route of the peaks around Loch Ossian from Corrour Train Halt, which also takes in Sgor Gaibhre and Carn Dearg. This requires a train journey from Fort William or Tulloch in the north or from Glasgow or Crianlarich to the south, either way, it's a delightful way to arrive in the Ossian area.

An alternative route not requiring a train journey, but possibly using a bike instead, is to take the estate tracks to Corrour from Laggan. You'll also be able to bag Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain with Beinn na Lap from this direction
