Beinn Dòrain & Beinn an Dòthaidh, Bridge of Orchy

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Dòrain is one of the most instantly recognisable Munros in the southern Highlands, a huge conical peak that dominates the A82 when driving north from Tyndrum. Its ascent can easily be combined with neighbouring Beinn an Dòthaidh which has a fine outlook over Rannoch Moor.


Eroded paths for much of the route, some wet sections. These mountains are steep in parts and difficult to navigate in mist.

Public Transport

Bridge of Orchy is well served both by Citilink buses and by its train station.


Bridge of Orchy car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
