Beinn a'Chrulaiste from Altnafeidh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn a'Chrulaiste is well seen when driving north on the A82 towards Glencoe, but its rounded, bulky outline goes unnoticed next to the magnificence of Buachaille Etive Mor on the other side of the road. It does, however, make perhaps the greatest viewpoint for its celebrated neighbour; the panorama from the summit is outstanding in all directions.


Fairly short hillwalk over mostly heathery ground. Any paths are intermittent. Boggy in places - especially descent route given to Kingshouse which can be avoided by instead retracing steps.

Public Transport

There is a bus service along the A82 between Glasgow and Fort William.


Layby at Altnafeadh. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
