Gaor Bheinn, also known as Gulvain or Culvain, is a mountain in Scotland, to the north of the road west of Fort William (from which it is usually climbed), and south of Loch Arkaig. It is composed of banded granite and shaped like a letter Y, with two tops connected by a ridge running from northeast to southwest, with the northern top 6 m higher than the one to the south. Crags drop at either end, and steep slopes fall away to either side.

The south ridge path is really a stream bed, so in wet conditions an easier if longer ascent from Na Socachan is to walk up Allt a Choire Reidh towards Gualann nan Osna and climb the south top's north-west ridge.
