Beinn Bhuidhe, via Glen Fyne

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Bhuidhe is a Munro isolated from any others, and the long walk in means it is much less visited than the nearby Arrochar Alps, despite it having rough and rocky slopes in places. The approach described here is the traditional one following a private road up the glen (can be cycled) and then a rugged ascent; it is possible instead to make use of an ugly new hydro track from near where the route crosses the river until around 550m, where the track crosses the route described.


Approach is on tarmac and rough tracks. Ascent route described ascends steep ground with avoidable scramble and some bogs. Descent route is pathless but easier going.
