Beinn Odhar, Beinn Chaorach and Cam Chreag from Tyndrum

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These three grassy Corbetts make an enjoyable round from Tyndrum. Beinn Odhar is a graceful cone with fine views; there is then a very steep descent and climb to reach the very rounded Beinn Chaorach, well-named as the hill of the sheep. The final summit, Cam Chreag, is a little more rocky before a lengthy descent and return to Tyndrum via the West Highland Way.


Mostly grassy hills; no paths on the high ground. Some boggy sections and very steep descent and reascent between Beinn Odhar and Beinn Chaorach
