Ladhar Bheinn

Located to the south of Loch Hourn in the heart of Knoydart (Lochaber district of Highland Council Area), Ladhar Bheinn consists of numerous ridges, peaks and corries, which provide much interest for climbers. The highest peak reaches 1020m (3346 feet) and is classified as a Munro. There is an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar on a secondary summit which reaches 1010m (3313 feet) approximately 300m (1000 feet) to the west northwest of the main summit. The northern part of the mountain is owned by the John Muir Trust, who bought it following a threatened purchase by the Ministry of Defence. The Trust's main work is to regenerate the native Caledonian pine woods. Its name originates from Gaelic and means "toe of the hill" or "claw of the hill".
