Beinn a'Chleibh only just makes Munro status and is overshadowed by its far more celebrated neighbour Ben Lui, with which it is usually climbed. It presents forbiddingly steep slopes to Glen Lochay.
Altitude: 916 metres
Detailed route description and map
Other routes and challenges
The above route is almost invariably used; the other slopes above Glen Lochay being barred by steepness, boggyness, forestry, the river and railway. It is possible to reach the southeastern slopes using a track from Glen Falloch but this would make a long and wet route.
Climbing all four Munros of the group offers a long but manageable day, usually done as a traverse from Dalrigh to Glen Lochay.
