A shapely hill range rather than a single mountain, Beinn a' Ghlò has three Munro summits giving a strenuous day. The summits may be rounded, but the steep flanks and sculpted form of this great massif makes for a memorable outing.

Terrain

Mostly good paths, with steep descents between the peaks and some rough ground. Some boggy terrain on descent.

Public Transport

Public transport to Blair Atholl, 4 km from the walk start.

Start

Car park (charge) near end of public section of Monzie road, near Loch Moraig. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
