Walk 2418 - Beinn a'Chroin & Beinn Chabhair, from Inverlochlarig, Balquhidder

Nat Park   Loch Lomond and Trossachs
County/Area   Stirling
AuthorTony Maries
Length15.0 miles / 24.4 km
Ascent4500 feet / 1364 metres

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.
