Beinn a'ChoinAlthough not too far from Scotland's populated Central Belt, this is a remote and fairly inaccessible area, so much so, the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon took place here in 2002.
In the heart of Rob Roy country, the area is full of little gems - check out the 'Local info & more' links below.
