Beinn Liath Mhòr is a Scottish mountain situated in the mountainous area between Strath Carron and Glen Torridon in Wester Ross in the Highland region. Geologically Beinn Liath Mhòr is made up of Cambrian quartzite scree and Torridonian sandstones giving the mountain a distinctive colour contrast of light and dark. The mountain's other main characteristic is its two kilometre long undulating summit ridge which does not drop below 800 metres for its entire length. This culminates at the summit at its far western end at a height of 926 metres (3038 feet) making Beinn Liath Mhòr the 258th highest Munro.

  • An excellent Munro with (in good weather) stunning views to all three of the Torridon massifs. The initial walk in is a beautiful walk and is surrounded by an outstanding glacial landscape. From the pass over to Torridon the climb is very steep but quickly rewards with a narrow but not too extreme ridge walk. Descending the north west ridge is hard going, with many bouldery bits and steep craggy knolls, but the path is reasonably clear and takes a sensible route to the col.
  • Great climb
