This is a trip up the most isolated munro in the southern highlands Beinn Bhuidhe which is a complex lhill with steep sides of crags and wet grass that is situated between the upper reaches of Glen Fyne and Glen Shira.

This is the best approach preferably cycling up the private road up Glen Fyne as you can cycle as far as Inverchorachan which is about 7km. From the derelict cottage climb north-west to reach a high corrie below Beinn Bhuidhe and its north-east top. Steeper slopes to the col between these two points and continue south-west along the summit ridge to reach the highest point. Return by the same route of ascent.

You will get excellent views of The Tyndrum Hills on the north-east
