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 how to access it by public transport.

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 how to access it by public transport.

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 how to access it by public transport.

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 how to access it by public transport.

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 how to access it by public transport.

Stob Binnein (1,165m)

Ben More and Stob Binnein seen from Cruach Ardrain

Usually walked with the neighbour, Ben More, Stob Binnein is reached after a fairly easy going ridge, or hill pass between the two mountains. Read how to access it by public transport.

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 how to access them by public transport.

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

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 how to access it by public transport.

Ben Challum (1,025m)

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

Approaching Ben Challum 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 how to access it by public transport.

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

scots-pine-forest

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 how to access them by public transport.
