Details for Glas Bheinn Mhor

Glas Bheinn Mhor is quite a remote hill and sits to the east of Ben Starav of which it is usually climbed with via a col which drops to 766 metres linking the two munros. It is a steep sided mountain and has the clasical pyramidal form due to the steep rocky north face.

Descents from Glas Bheinn Mhor are usually from the bealach east-north-east of the summit that also joins the munro Stob Coir an Albannaic; this descent is very wet which also leads to the "Robbers' waterfall" on the Allt Mheuran, which is a spectacular waterfall.

Ascents or descents from Glas Bheinn Mhor directly on the northern slopes are extremly steep and is ground well worth avoiding, exspecially in snow or wet weather.

Routes from Loch Tulla (Glen Kinglass) on the south eastern side are possible but are much longer than access via Loch Etive (Glen Etive) on the north west side of the munro.
