An Caisteal (995m, Munro) – the castle
Beinn a’ Chroin (942, Munro) – hill of the sheepfold
Two fine hills at the head of Glen Falloch. Do one or both. Although they look grassy from below, both hills have some interesting rocky sections on their upper slopes.
An Caisteal takes the form of a long ridged mountain to the south of Crianlarich whilst Beinn a’ Chròin is a surprisingly rocky little mountain. The location of its true summit has been the subject of controversy; that with the largest cairn was regarded as the top for many years, but the higher, Munro summit is actually that further west along the ridge.
16km, 1128m ascent – both hills
*10km, 860m ascent – An Caisteal only
Please note that walks may change at short notice due to conditions on the day and Covid restrictions.
