Beinn Bheula, near Lochgoilhead

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Bheula enjoys a superb location rising above remote Lochgoilhead and almost surrounded by the many sea lochs that penetrate for miles in this part of Argyll. Although only a fairly lowly Corbett, it is a steep and very rugged mountain of grand character. Although fairly short this hillwalk gives very rough going in places.


Track initially, then very rugged hill with some steep, pathless ground, boggy in parts. The descent route given is particularly tough going.

Public Transport

None to start.


Lettermay. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
