Details for Beinn Tulaichean

Beinn Tulaichean is a simple mountain that rises steeply to the North West of Inverlochlarig and Loch Doine / Loch Voil. The summit is marked with a small cairn ringed by small crags and boulders which is only 126m higher than the lowest point (820m) of the northern ridge which connects to Cruach Ardrain. The south, eastern, and western flanks of Beinn Tulaichean fall steeply mostly grassy but with crags in some places giving best access to the summit. It is one of the smaller munros around Crianlarich and if climbing via the northern ridge there a feeling to suggest it's not a munro even with it's status due to the small drop. The most interesting feature of the hill is probably the eastern flank which has an area of crags and fallen bolders forming many caves and fissures not far below the summit.

Usual access is from the south via Inverlochlari on a private road then climbing the south eastern side directly above Inverlochlarig Farm which is the site of Rob Roy's house. This side is climbed easily until some large crags and bolders need to be avoided by keeping to the west to gain access to the southern ridge and summit cairn. Alternative access and perhaps the preferred is a combination with Cruach Ardrain from Crianlarich and then accessing via Beinn Tulaichean's northern ridge.
