Details for Beinn Chabhair

Beinn Chabhair is quite a rugged little peak which sits hidden on the west side of the Crainlarich group of munros. Even though the peak is situated close to the A82 road the summit is set back and out of site from the road, it's best viewed further up Glen Falloch where you get a view of the north-western ridge which is the peaks best feature. Beinn Chabhair is the smallest munros of the Crainlarich group and is usually climbed on it's own but could possibly combined with it's eastern neighbours An Casteal & Beinn a' Chroin.

The munro has a long, rocky north-west ridge from the summit separates the streams of Ben Glas Burn (to the south) and Allt a'Chuilinn (to the north). To the west lies the Lochan a' Chaisteil which helps feed the splendid waterfalls which fall above Beinglas Farm. There is a ridge to the north east to a bealach connecting to the munro An Caisteal which can also be climbed.

Usual access onto Beinn Chabhair is by the most direct route from the north side of Ben Glas Burn along a path upto Lochan Bienn Chabhair from where acces to the north western ridge can be gained to access the summit point located at the end of the ridge. Alternatively Beinn Chabhair can be climbed from the head of the River Larig where the south eastern slopes can be climbed giving access to the summit.

It has great views in all directions on a clear day, but particularly over The Arrochar Alps and down along Loch Lommond.
