Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn Ghlas is a little known Munro but one of the most frequently climbed, the reason being that it is visited on the usual path used en-route to Ben Lawers. Almost never climbed in its own right, it supports a wonderful arctic flora and is part of the Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve.
