Beinn an Lochain was classified as a Munro on Sir Hugh's original list. More recent surveys put it well below 3000 feet but it is very steep and fine mountain that admits no inferiority to the surrounding higher peaks. It gives a short but strenuous hillwalk.
Boggy at first then a very steep ascent of a fine rocky ridge, but the scrambling is only mild.
Layby on A83 north of Rest and Be Thankful.
