Cruach Àrdrain and Beinn Tulaichean

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Cruach Àrdrain has a distinctive outline which makes it a familiar sight from the Crianlarich and Tyndrum area. Its southern ridge rises to the satellite Munro peak of Beinn Tulaichean; to include both of these summits it is more convenient to start from the south to avoid reascending over the shoulder of Cruach Àrdrain. The slopes to and from the ridge are steep, rugged and pathless.


Pathless and boggy ascent and descent from the ridge, the descent is also rough going. The ridge linking the two Munros has a path and is more straightforward.

Public Transport

None to start.


Inverlochlarig, near Balquhidder. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.

Deer Stalking information

All approaches from the north-west (Glen Falloch) side of the main ridge: Glenfalloch Estate. Stalking between late Aug and 20 Oct. For Beinn Chabhair, the approach via the Ben Glas burn (and avoiding Coire a’Chuilinn to the north) is always OK. On other hills, routes which keep to the ridges and avoid corrie floors are always OK. If further information is needed, please phone 01301 704229 or e-mail
