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. Nonetheless the approach is worthwhile as the summit is a fabulous viewpoint. The private road up the glen can be cycled.

Terrain

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.

Public Transport

Bus to Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. Traveline Scotland.
