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.
None to start.
Inverlochlarig, near Balquhidder.
