Fionn Bheinn is one of those lonely Munros that is a day out on its own, rather than part of a group. Not many walkers have much to say about the hill, except that the views across to Torridon are superb, and hey, any day on the hills beats one in the office. So make time to stop off at Achnasheen when travelling between Inverness and Lochalsh. The area is ideal for a wild camp, and there is also a bunkhouse at Ledgowan Lodge in Achnasheen.
