Ruadh-stac Beag is a rugged Corbett peak in Torridon, tucked behind the sprawling ridges and peaks of mighty Beinn Eighe.

The only practicable access to the base of this little mountain is via the 'pony track' which begins from just outside Kinlochewe at the southern end of Loch Maree. As Ruadh-stac Beag is guarded on most sides by scree and crags, finding a line of ascent is challenging, with only the southern ridge allowing hillwalkers access.
