A Ghlas Bheinn and the Falls of Glomach

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A Ghlas Bheinn is a relatively small Munro, seeming at first glance to be rather overshadowed by neighbouring Beinn Fhada. On closer aquintance it is revealed as a rocky mountain of great character. The ascent here is combed with a visit to the Falls of Glomach - the finest in Scotland.


Good stalker paths to the Bealach an Sgairne; from the pass to the summit is a rougher hill path. Descent route described is much rougher and steeper with pathless going before the Bealach na Sroine route is reached.

Public Transport

None to start. Citilink buses from Glasgow and Inverness stop at Allt a'chruinn, 2km from Morvich.
