Beinn a'Ghlo

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

More a range of hills than a single peak, Beinn a'Ghlo has three Munro summits giving a strenuous day. The summits may be rounded, but the steep flanks and sculpted form of this great massif makes for a memorable outing.


Mostly good paths, with steep descents between the peaks and some rough, boggy ground.
