Beinn a' Bhuiridh, near Loch Awe

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn a' Bhuiridh is really the final peak on the Ben Cruachan horseshoe of ridges, though its steep northern slope means that most people do not include this Corbett in their Cruachan round. Here we describe it as a hillwalk in its own right, along the east ridge over Monadh Driseig - rough terrain initially but with great views.


Track, then steep, pathless and rough hillside. Higher up the ridge gives drier going.

Public Transport

Citylink Oban bus passes the start but no place to stop; nearest stop Lochawe which also has a train station.


Parking near junction of B8077 and A85. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
