Deer Stalking information

All approaches from the north-west (Glen Falloch) side of the main ridge: Glenfalloch Estate. Stalking between late Aug and 20 Oct. For Beinn Chabhair, the approach via the Ben Glas burn (and avoiding Coire a’Chuilinn to the north) is always OK. On other hills, routes which keep to the ridges and avoid corrie floors are always OK. If further information is needed, please phone 01301 704229 or e-mail
