BEINN CRUACHAN HILL WALKING

Beinn Cruachan commands respect, for the traverse of its seven tops, with ascent of 4900 feet, is one of the classic expeditions of the Southern Highlands. The traditional start lies near the old railway station at Falls of Cruachan.
 

This group of hills, lying some five miles south-west of Tyndrum is dominated by Beinn Laoigh.  On its Cononish side, steep ribs rise to buttress twin peaks on the headwall of Coire Gaothaich.  This great scoop holds snow much longer than most others in the Southern Highlands and has long been popular for its winter ascents.
