Beinn Iaruinn and Leana Mhor, Glen Roy

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Iaruinn rises very steeply above the rollercoaster road up Glen Roy, with the northern arm of its corrie being the most usual route of ascent. Combining the hill with neighbouring Leana Mòr , however, makes for a more enjoyable walk avoiding the steepest slopes.


Steep initial ascent to largely pathless, heathery hills. Boggy ground particularly at the bealach and on descent.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking on grass verges near bridge and sharp bend at NN300880. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
