Ben Tirran by Loch Brandy and Wharral, Glen Clova

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Tirran has a flat and rather featureless summit but is redeemed by its fine corries above Glen Clova. This walk visits both to make a circular route up Clova's only Corbett summit.


Superb path up to Loch Brandy but pathless and very boggy going across the featureless plateau. Improving path on descent.

Public Transport

None to start.
