Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chlèibh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation


Ben Lui is regarded as one of the grandest and most elegant mountains in the Southern Highlands, with a magnificent appearance when seen up the Cononish Glen from Dalrigh. The shortest route to it is from Glen Lochy, enabling easy inclusion of its less impressive neighbour Beinn a'Chlèibh.

It is necessary to cross the River Lochy near the start of the walk - there is no bridge and it usually requires a wade and would be impassable in spate. There are some very boggy sections in the forest, and the lower slopes are wet, pathless and grassy, eventually giving way to steeper rocky terrain.

Public Transport
