Detailed route description and map

Ben Lui and Beinn a' Chlèibh from Glen Lochay

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.
