Beinn a Chlaidheimh is another remote Munro of the Fisherfield Forrest. It lies in the NE corner overlooking Loch na Sealga to the NW. The summit ridge runs SW to NE terminating at its NE end at Strath na Sealga and Shenvall bothy which is worth a stay. The northern end of the summit ridge has several crags and care must be taken if using this route (this is the most common route of ascent). The southern ridge stretches out for 3km dropping to a low col before connecting with neighbouring Munro Sgurr Ban; this is best left included with the southern Fisherfield Munros however (that’s not to say you can’t).
The western face of the Munro rises from Gleann na Muice a deep glen separating The eastern and western Munros of the Fisherfield Forrest. This face is steep and often craggy, particularly surrounding the summit. The eastern slopes are less intimidating but are rarely used.
The best views from Beinn a Chlaidheimh are down the lovely Loch na Sealga and across to the truly amazing An Teallach. The views west to the other hills of Fisherfield are also superb. You can really appreciate how wild and remote this area of Scotland is from the summit.
Beinn a Chlaidheimh although not quite as far out as some of its neighbours is still a remote Munro and will demand a long walk in to start the climb. Most people access it from the north on the A832 road at Corrie Hall. A good set of land rover tracks lead to its NE ridge.
