Beinn Bheigeir

Beinn Bheigier (occasionally anglicised as "Ben Vicar") is a Marilyn on the Isle of Islay in Scotland, UK. With 491 m, it is the highest of the seven Marilyns on Islay, and the highest point on the island. [1]

It is located in the south east of Islay in the Ardtalla Estate. One possible approach is from Ardtalla: Start by following the path north towards Proaig, then turn west towards Beinn Bheigier. Once some height is gained turn northwest to walk around the hill towards Bealach Corrach. Walk west towards the bealach, then steeply climb up to reach the summit.

A trig point marks the summit. On a clear day views include the Isle of Jura with the Paps of Jura, Kintyre, the Isle of Arran and most of Islay.
