Beinn Fhada is a bulky mountain with no sign of the graceful ridges elsewhere in Kintail. However an ascent of the mountain reveals its true character and fine northern corries.

A stalkers path gives a fairly straightforward route to the plateau, but crossing the plateau itself requires good navigation skills. The alternative descent involves a slabby scramble; in wet weather it should be avoided and the ascent route retraced.
