The rugged little peak of Beinn Chabhair

Ben Chabhair stands on the southern edge of the Crianlarich group and is the last-named peak which overlooks Glen Falloch at the head of Loch Lomond.
Good route up behind Beinglas Farm where access is gained by crossing a bridge over the river Falloch. Follow the steep path at the back of the farm past the falls of the Ben Glas Burn which is a fine sight. Continue along the path which is boggy in parts up-to Lochain Beinn Chabhair where you can climb up grassy slopes to reach Beinn Chabhair's north western ridge from where the summit can be accessed.
To descend return back along the north western ridge all the way along past Lochan a' Chaisteil which is a picturesque place onto the peak Meall Mor nan Eag. From here descend back down to Beinglas Farm.
