Munros by public transport

Here is a list of Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft/914m) which you can access by public transport from Glasgow, located less than hour away from the borders of the National Park.

Ben Lomond (974m)

Situated on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond and at the gateway to the Highlands, Ben Lomond’s claim to fame is that it’s the most southerly of the Munros (Scottish mountains with a summit of more than 3,000ft or 914.4m). Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Beinn Ime (1,011m)

Beinn Ime

The highest peak in the so-called Arrochar Alps to the west of Loch Lomond and one of several Munros, Beinn Ime offers a superb walk from the shore of Loch Long. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Beinn Narnain (926m)

A neighbour of Beinn Ime and often walked in a circuit with its taller sibling, Beinn Narnain also offers a fantastic hike from close to Arrochar. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Ben Vorlich (943m)

Also in the Arrochar Alps and the most northerly, Ben Vorlich provides a great day of hiking from Ardlui, if reached by public transport (the other easier alternative would be from Inveruglas via the Loch Sloy dam road). Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Ben More (1,174m)

Stob Binnein & Ben More from Glen Dochart

There are four Munros in Scotland with the name More, one of the other three being Ben More on the Island of Mull. Inside the National Park, Ben More and its close neighbour Stob Binnein are located close to Crianlarich and relatively easy to reach from there by public transport. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Stob Binnein (1,165m)

Usually walked with the neighbour, Ben More, this Munro is reached after a fairly easy going ridge, or hill pass between the two mountains. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Cruach Ardrain (1,046m) and Beinn Tulaichean (946m)

Cruach Ardrain seen from Crianlarich

It makes sense to walk these two Munros together since to reach the 946m summit of Tulaichean, starting from Crianlarich, you will  walk over the 1046m peak of Cruach Ardrain. Read more about them and how to access them by public transport here.

An Caisteal (995m) and Beinn a’Chroin (942m)

Another pair of Munros, situated close to Crianlarich, that can be walked together during a great day of hiking. Read more about them and how to access them by public transport here.

Beinn Chabhair (933m)

View south from Beinn Chabhair

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. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Ben Challum (1,025m)

Beinn Dubhchraig, Ben Oss and Ben Lui seen from Ben Challum

Approaching this mountain on the A82, you might not think much of the vast grassy slopes. Indeed when seen from the Glen Lochay side it looks more classically inspiring. Read more about it and how to access it by public transport here.

Beinn Dubhchraig (978m) and Beinn Oss (1,029m)

The slopes of these two Munros are covered by one of the last stretches of Caledonian forest (mixed with birch)

Accessed from Dalrigh on the A82 and on a long walk through forests of pine and birch, many people choose to tick off both Dubhchraig and the nearby neighbour Oss. Read more about them and how to access them by public transport here.
