Beinn a'Chroin

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn a'Chroin is a surprisingly rocky little mountain to the south of Crianlarich. The location of the true summit has been the subject of controversy; that with the largest cairn was regarded as the top for many years, but the higher, Munro summit is actually that further west along the ridge.

An Caisteal and Beinn a'Chroin from Glen Falloch

Other routes and challenges

For those wishing to add a third Munro, Beinn Chabhair can be included, but the descent and reascent to reach it involves steep and challenging terrain. The descent from Beinn Chabhair is then usually made to the west.

The epic challenge route hereabouts involves ascents of all the 7 Crianlarich Munros - an exceptionally demanding expedition over very rough terrain at times.
