Glas Bheinn from Kinlochleven

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Glas Bheinn is a shy and retiring Corbett, remaining hidden from most viewpoints as it rises shapelessly from the wild moors east of Kinlochleven. It provides an enjoyable walk, however, with unfamiliar perspectives on the surrounding higher peaks.


Stalkers paths for much of the distance, though parts of these are extremely wet underfoot. Pathless heathery ground on the hill itself.

Public Transport

Kinlochleven is served by bus from Fort William.
