Beinn an Dòthaidh (from the Gaelic for 'hill of the scorching or singeing'), is a mountain in the Bridge of Orchy hills of Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is located beside the more popular Beinn Dòrain. The two hills are frequently climbed together from the bealach between them, which is easily accessed from the Bridge of Orchy railway station.
Alternatively, Beinn an Dòthaidh may be climbed via its northwest ridge, or combined with an ascent of Beinn Achaladair to the northeast.
