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 Dubh, 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.


The views from the top are breathtaking!


Arrochar Alps (with the iconic Cobbler) reveal themselves at the summit

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.
