Beinn na Caillich is a mountain at the eastern end of the Isle of Skye, in Scotland. It is situated to the west of Kyle Rhea, about 4 km south-east of Kyleakin. Confusingly, there is another hill named Beinn na Caillich on Skye with an identical height in the Red Cuillin, 4 km west of Broadford.
It is often climbed along with its slightly higher neighbour, Sgurr na Coinnich, which is 1 km to the south-west.
