Despite it's imposing appearanece Beinn Alligin is actually a fiarly straight forward prospect. Thanks to a natural horseshoe formation its two principla summits can be easily gained in a single traverse  that offers stunning views of the northwestern seaboard and beyond to Wester Ross. Looking east from the summit of Sgurr Mor the warm evening light is in sharp contrast to the depth of shadow in the Glen below, an indication of just how steep sided and dramatic this part of the landscape can be.
