Mam na Gualainn circuit, Kinlochleven

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Mam na Gualainn is the western termination of a grand grassy ridgewalk high above Loch Leven with magnificent views. Although it can be more quickly reached from Callert, it would be a shame to miss the superb ridge via Beinn na Caillich on this excellent circuit.


Stalkers' paths on the hill for much of the route; some pathless and indistinct sections. Burn crossing and approach/return on West Highland Way.

Public Transport

Regular buses to Kinlochleven from Fort William.
