A superb hike, especially on a fine day, the peak of Beinn Chabhair is reached via a steep eroded path beside the dramatic waterfalls of the Ben Glas Burn and then a series of many ups and downs as you gradually ascend.
It feels like a classic Scottish hike thanks to the craggy look of the mountain and the splendid views of Ben Lomond and Loch Long, moorlands and numerous hills and mountains dotted as far as the eye can see.
The Gaelic translation of Chabhair is thought to be “hill of the hawks” or “hill of the antler”, perhaps referring to the number of deer on the hill.

We want everyone to enjoy the National Park in a safe and responsible manner. Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other land management activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.
Hiking and hillwalking are risk sports. Always ensure you are prepared before heading out to the hills – information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland.
