Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Cruach Ardrain has a very distinctive outline and is a familiar sight from the Crianlarich and Tyndrum area. Its southern ridge rises slightly to the inconsequential Munro of Beinn Tulaichean, and to include both peaks it is more convenient to start from the south.

Terrain

Pathless and quite boggy ascent and descent from the ridge; the going between the two Munros is more straightforward.

Public Transport

None to start. Traveline Scotland.

Start

Inverlochlarig, near Balquhidder. Map and directions.
