The Triple Buttress corrie

start: 60 mins by car
walk: 4-5 hrs

Into the Beinn Eighe mountain range you will find this wonderful corrie. It’s a strenous walk, buth the path ascents gently and the scenery is stunning, you feel very little between the giant Liathach and Beinn Eighe on either side. The final climb towards the corrie and the loch is a bit steep, but certainly worth it. Link to start point and route map

An Teallach

start: 30 mins by car
walk: 8-9 hrs

An Teallach is one of the most beautiful and iconic mountain ranges in Scotland, and it’s right at the doorstep of Bliss haus. If you are fit enough and are looking for a real challenge, this is a must do. The climb is long and in some places steep, but once you are on the top of the first munro “Bidean a’ Ghlas Thuill” the views of the pinnacles and the other mountains in the remote Fisherfield Forest will simply take your breath away.

Shenavall Bothy circuit

start: 35 mins by car
walk: 6-7 hrs

Great hike to an iconic bothy. If you wish, you can stay overnight to immerse yourself in this remote place. Lots of deer around! Link to start point and route map


start: 45 mins by car
walk: 8-9 hrs

Slioch is another iconic munro close to Bliss haus. Overlooking Loch Maree and looking inaccessible, the climb of the mountain is a serious one. Especially because of it’s long approach along the delta of Loch Maree. Once the climb starts, you will quickly gain height. Just before the final climb you will pass two beautiful lochans, an ideal spot for an overnight camp on a summer day. On the top of the munro the views in all directions are just stunning: Torridon, Loch Maree, Skye, An Teallach, just to name a few. Makes for a great but very challenging day.

Beinn a Chearchaill

start: 45 mins by car
walk: 5-6 hrs

This is a so called ‘Fiona’, and with it’s 700 metres it can’t measure itself with the big munros surrounding it. But the plateau makes an ideal setting to view all the big Torridon mountains in all it’s glory. Therefore the hike is rewarding and surely unforgettable. The hike starts at a bungalow on the right side of the road south of Gairloch. The start of the path is very clear, higher up you have to navigate your own way to the plateau.
