Beinn Chabhair Slog

Route: Beinn Chabhair, from Inverarnan

Munros: Beinn Chabhair

Date walked: 19/07/2020

Time taken: 5.5 hours

Distance: 16km

Ascent: 947m

Sunshine & showers all day.
The first part of the walk is through very steep overgrown Forrest, be careful during rain as underfoot is very slippy.
Once getting up onto the moorland it is a long boggy slog following the burn. The bog is unavoidable so be prepared for wet feet!
The final climb was enjoyable, however the winds were not! On a clearer day there would be great views to your left over the other Crianlarich Munros and views to your right of Loch long and Ben Lomond. These were intermittent through the clouds. A few false summits and hidden peaks made it mentally challenging but still enjoyed the final stretch.
Would recommend after a stretch of dry weather as the bog would hopefully not be as tedious.
