Beinn a' Bhathaich Àrd is mountain in northern Inverness-shire, on the northern side of Glen Strathfarrar, deep in the Highlands. It is at the eastern end of the glen, 2½ miles north-west of the village of Struy, and 10 miles west of Beauly.

Though not the highest hill in Strathfarrar, its position at the end of the glen makes it visible for some distance around - it is a prominent landmark from much of The Aird, Inverness and the Kessock Bridge.

The mountain's name is Gaelic and means "Mountain of the high byre".


Beinn a' Bhathaich Àrd is usually climbed from the hamlet of Inchmore, at the foot of Strathfarrar.
