Two fine Munros with rewarding ridge walking and great views over a wide expanse from Loch Lomond to Ben Nevis. The walking is mostly on good grassy ground underfoot with a final section that can be boggy.


Short section of track and then path for most of the route, indistinct in places. Minor scramble on Beinn a'Chròin, avoidable via an awkward detour.

Public Transport

Citylink buses between Glasgow and Crianlarich run past the start.


Parking layby 4km south of Crianlarich off A82. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
