Beinn Achaladair and Beinn a'Chreachain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This pair of Munros forms the northerly half of the Beinn Dòrain range and gives a grand ridgewalk. Beinn a'Chreachain, the highest Munro in the range, has a fine northern corrie, whilst Beinn Achaladair is a very shapely peak with much character. The views - especially looking out over the vast soggy table-land of Rannoch Moor - are magnificent.


Mixed terrain: some pathless sections, some boggy parts, one very steep ascent and a good deal of fine grassy ridges. Note that the footbridge over the Water of Tulla shown on maps no longer exists and is forded in the route describted; this crossing can be avoided by sticking to the south bank.

Public Transport

Citylink buses pass along the nearby A82 between Fort William and Glasgow.


Car park just off the A82 signed for Achaladair Farm. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
