Beinn a' Chreachain is the easternmost of the four Bridge of Orchy Munros. Although not as fine as neighbouring Beinn Achaladair, it has impressive Coire an Lochain on its northern flank, harbouring a lovely lochan, whilst its summit looks out over the immense flatness of Rannoch Moor.
Altitude: 1081 metres

Other routes and challenges
For those who can arrange transport at both ends, it is feasible but challenging to extend the traverse by continuing to Beinn an Dothaidh and Beinn Dorain before descending to Bridge of Orchy.
The extremely fit could detour from Beinn Achaladair to include Beinn Mhanach as well.
