Whilst it may rank amongst the smaller Munros, Beinn Chabhair is a suprisingly rugged peak with great character. The summit ridge is a lumpy collection of knolls and rocky humps which make a fine walk. The start via Beinglas Falls is very steep and eroded, and there is fair amount of boggy ground on the middle, moorland section.


Hill path; stony and eroded lower down, boggy across moors. Good path up the ridge itself.

Public Transport
