Beinn an t-Sìdhean is a steep-sided hill that shelters Strathyre from the westerly winds. Its flanks are extensively clothed with forestry plantations but from the moorland above there are stunning views over Loch Lubnaig. The walk is described to the true summit, but there are a couple of fine stops along the way that make grand objectives for a slightly shorter walk in their own right.
Steep paths up through the forest, very muddy in places, a short moorland section requiring navigation.
Bus to Strathyre.
Strathyre Forestry Commission car park, A84 Strathyre.
