Beinn Bhrotain


Beinn Bhrotain is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland. It is situated in the Cairngorms National Park and has an elevation of 1,157 metres.

This is a challenging walk, with the route covering 29 kilometres of featureless, very exposed plateau. A map and compass is necessary in poor weather due to just how exposed and remote this area is. Park at Glen Feshie car park for the start of this walk.

On a clear day, the views on this walk are very impressive.

Before you go

  • This is a wild and remote place so make sure you are fully prepared for your visit.

    This means wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear for the the conditions, having a compass, map of the area and the knowledge to use these.

    You should also take some food, plenty of water, a first aid kit with an emergency whistle, a head torch and a mobile phone. You should also have spare warm and waterproof clothing with you and a survival bag should you need to await rescue for an emergency situation on the mountain.

    Always tell someone details of your route and give an indication of the time you should be expected back.
