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.


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

Public Transport

None to start.

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
