Garbh Bheinn above Loch Leven

Unlike it's Corbett neighbour Meall na Gualainn standing in a solitary position above the opposite shore of Loch Leven, Garbh Bheinn is hemmed in by the Aonach Eagach ridge and other Munro summits. It therefore doesn't afford such great views north, south or west, however the view eastwards from the summit over Rannoch Moor to Schiehallion is wonderful.


Main route summary


The easiest and most direct route up the hill is over two contrasting parts - a wet mucky trudge for the first 400m of ascent and a loose path on gravel thereafter.

Overall the route is very enjoyable and worthy of a fine summer evening's stroll or a short winter's daylight ramble.
