Beinn Chabhair, from Inverarnan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A fine Munro with good views down Loch Long. The summit ridge is a lumpy collection of knolls and rocky humps which make a great walk in fine weather. The lower section can be boggy and the first and last sections next to Beinglas Falls are stony and eroded.

Terrain

Stony eroded path, higher up there is a boggy section; excellent path once the ridge is reached.

Public Transport

Start the walk at Inverarnan and follow the pavement along the A82 to the turning for Beinglas Farm Campsite. After the bridge turn right into the field to avoid walking directly through the campsite which is discouraged. Follow the path which skirts around the field following the river and then turning left following the stream and passing through a gate to the edge of the campsite. Walk past the West Highland Way signs and the wigwams and cross a stile over a stone wall. Head straight uphill here on a stony path. The path climbs steeply through bracken and crosses another stile and continues uphill towards the Beinglas Falls.
