Beinn a' Chlachair is the highest of a group of three Munros in the Ardverikie Forest south of Loch Laggan. Its finest feature is Coire Mor a' Chlachair, a fine corrie on its northern flanks. The mountain has a spacious plateau but presents a forbidding wall to remote An Lairig to the south, whilst on all other sides it is very steep.

Other routes and challenges

The ascent given above is by far the most convenient. The stalkers' paths from Loch Pattack involve fording the Allt Cam, whilst the west ridge - Ceann Caol Beinn a' Chlachair - would give a good route were it not such a long walk to reach its start.
