An Caisteal and Beinn a'Chròin

Route: An Caisteal and Beinn a'Chròin, near Crianlarich

Munros: An Caisteal, Beinn a' Chròin

Date walked: 27/06/2021

Time taken: 7 hours

Distance: 15.41km

Ascent: 1477m

The route is not quite as described on here. To find your way up to the ridge you need to walk about 1.5km to the first gate and the start of the faint path is just the other side on the right. If you come off the track as described on the walk description you will need to climb the fence as there's no gate. It looks like people have climbed the fence as its been bent down. I found the correct point on my way back.
Also when it discribes the scramble up the rocks as easily manageable I'd disagree I didn't find it easy although I did manage to get up.
Having said that I really enjoyed this walk two fantastic hills and a great route.
