Beinn Mhanach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Mhanach is a dome-shaped and unspectacular Munro. One of the remoter peaks of the Southern Highlands, it does have a feeling of seclusion and the approach up the glen from Auch is very enjoyable.


There are no paths on Beinn Mhanach. The approach up the glen is on a good track but fords the river several times, which may not be possible in spate.

Public Transport

Buses run along the A82 past the start.
