Beinn Dubh

Located on the west side of Loch Lomond, the Glen Striddle hills offer a fine hike from the village of Luss and to the highest point, Beinn Dhub, at 657m.

In the open upland hills of the area, birds such as skylark, red grouse, breeding waders, buzzards and mammals such as red deer, mountain hare and possibly water vole may occur. These hills form a transitional character between the lowlands and more rugged highlands beyond. The glens around have a sense of remoteness despite their actual proximity to the popular south and west Loch Lomond destinations.

You could choose to simply walk out and back on the same route to Luss or complete a horseshoe circuit of some 12kms taking in another hilltop, Mid Hill, at 623m.

As you hike upwards, remember to stop every so often to turn to look back at stunning Loch Lomond spread out beneath you and the rise of majestic Ben Lomond over the waters on the eastern shore.

You can find more information about the trail here.

Before you go…

You’ll often find yourself in locations such as working farms, estates and areas protected for their conservation value, and we hope all our visitors will act responsibly and respect their surroundings, while having a safe and enjoyable time in the National Park.

  • Always ensure you are prepared; information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland and on our ‘Respect Your Park & stay safe‘ page.
  • Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other farming activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority cannot be held responsible for any accidents, injuries or damage sustained whilst hiking in the Park. All persons taking part in such activities do so at their own risk, acknowledging and accepting the risk of accident, injury or damage.
