Beinn Achaladair and Beinn a'Chreachain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This northerly part of the Beinn Dorain range 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 over Rannoch Moor - are magnificent.

Terrain

Mixed terrain: some pathless sections, some boggy parts, one very steep ascent and a good deal of fine grassy ridges. Bridge is down on Water of Tulla which means the route is impassable in spate conditions - in such conditions a rougher route could be taken remaining on the south bank of this river.

Public Transport

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

Start

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