Walk 2418

Beinn a'Chroin & Beinn Chabhair, from Inverlochlarig, Balquhidder

Nat Park - Loch Lomond and Trossachs

County/Area - Stirling

Author - Tony Maries

Length - 15.0 miles / 24.4 km

Ascent - 4500 feet / 1364 metres

Grade - hard

This Loch Lomond and the Trossachs walk describes the three Munros Beinn a'Chroin, An Caisteal and Beinn Chabhair using a longer and less frequented approach from the Balquhidder side. A long walk but on a fine day nothing of any technical difficulty with a few steep and rough sections, which fall well short of actual scrambling. The Munros to the east of the A82 up Glen Falloch to Crianlarich are all grassy hills which become much steeper and rockier higher up. All of them should be treated with respect in bad weather.
