Details for: Tyndrum

These hills rise on the south west of the little village called Tydnrum dominated by Ben Lui in appearance & height. There are scars on these hill from all the mining operations in a strange little gold rush period of time. The four munros are linked by a winding ridge which changed in character from grassy ridge to rocky buttresses.

The hills can be climbed in ones, two or one can traverse the whole range in a long days outing which really gives the range justice.

Tyndrum is also built over the battlefield on which, in 1306 AD, clan MacDougall defeated Robert the Bruce and took from him the Brooch of Lorne.
