Beinn Chabhair, from Inverarnan

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A fine Munro with good views down Loch Long. The summit ridge is a lumpy collection of knolls and rocky humps which make a great walk in fine weather. The lower section can be boggy and the first and last sections next to Beinglas Falls are stony and eroded. The bridge at Beinglas Farm used on this route is closed following flood damage. It is currently necessary to detour 1.5km north to an alternative bridge.


Stony eroded path, higher up there is a boggy section; excellent path once the ridge is reached.
