  • Take Me There

Although a Munro, hiking up Beinn Tulaichean can equally be seen as reaching the top of Cruach Ardrain’s southern ridge and the pair are frequently walked together. With a prominence of only 397 feet (121 m) between them and with easy, grassy terrain underfoot, it’s no great effort to bag both. 


Just because Beinn Tulaichean has a taller neighbour, that’s not to say it’s not a worthwhile summit. In fact, thanks to its southerly position, it offers fine views over the River Lairg below with Loch Doine and Loch Voil just visible to the east.


Hikes up Beinn Tulaichean commonly start in Inverlochlarig, near the site of 17th century outlaw Rob Roy’s final house. The northern boundary of the Trossachs, you’ll find yourself where the verdant greenery gives way to rocky mountains of a more rugged appeal. Hiking from the south is largely pathless, over grassy, steep slopes but with fantastic views to the lochs below.

Tips

  • Adventurer Nic

    Beinn Tulaichean is a 3,104-foot (946 m) Munro in the Scottish Highlands. It's often considered as one of a pair, alongside the higher Cruach Ardrain. They can be approached from the north or the south. Alternatively, if you're like me, you can tackle the seven Munros south of Crianlarich in a single outing. In which case, you'd take these on from southwest to northeast!

  • Parking at the head of Loch Voil offers easy access to this and Cruach Ardrain, another enjoyable pair of Munros. Walking this Munro usually stars walking through the farm and up its south east shoulder.
