The corrie of Coire Mhic Fearchair is found on the north side of Beinne Eighe in Torridon. The scenery is dominated by its triple buttress which provides many challenges for rock-climbers. Beneath the buttress are the remains of a Lancaster airplane that crashed just 4.6m below the summit of Beinne Eighe in 1951. The scene of the crash was almost inaccessible and the RAF tried for days to retrieve the bodes of the 8 personnel killed. The RAF finally had to turn to experienced local climbers who completed the task. When reflecting on this situation the RAF concluded that they needed a dedicated mountain rescue team and so the modern RAF MRT was formed.
