  Southern Highlands mountain routes  


Mountain hiking routes in Scotland's Southern Highlands



1 - Ben Lomond
The most southerly Munro. Quiet first thing in the morning and views are vast and superb from the summit.
2 - Arrochar Alps
Popular peaks west of Loch Lomond. Some interesting scrambling to climb through to The Cobbler's summit
3 - Beinn Bhuidhe
A hill to leave for a fine day as the views from the summit are excellent and the terrain will have you lost in mist
4 - The Ben Lui group
A good track in and grassy ridges make for an excellent route over four munros.
5 - Above Crianlarich
Distinctive landmark mountains. Bag all 7 munros in fairly long route. Or take more time on three separate shorter outings
6 - Beinn a'Choin
A rugged Corbett above Loch Katrine. A real sense of remoteness here, although Ben Lomond is just around the corner.
7 - Ben Ledi and Benvane
Good access paths and fences to follow making for two popular hills near Callander.
8 - Lochearnhead Corbetts
Many different possibilities for accessing these hills, but from Edinchip they can be combined into a fine circuit.
9 - South of Loch Earn
Easy enjoyable walking and a bit of scrambling. Stuc a'Chroin has a classic hillrace in May
10 - Ben Chonzie and Auchnafree Hill
An enjoyable easy summer's afternoon walk heading direct up Ben Chonzie. Longer routes include the neighbouring Corbett Auchnafree Hill (coming soon).
11 - Above Bridge of Orchy
A terrific circuit, taking in five munros. All the summits are fine view points.
12 - Glen Lochay
A fine circuit with 5 Munros and 3 Corbetts. This route can be a serious undertaking, so perhaps split in into smaller chunks
13 - Above Loch an Daimh
Two very different Munros and 3 Corbetts. Fine views, with Meall Buidhe being an excellent vantage point to look over Rannoch
14 - Meall Ghaordaidh and Beinn nan Oighreag
On one side these appear as characterless lumps, from the other they have crags and rocky outcrops.
15 - Meall nan Tarmachan
The most easterly peak on a fine ridge walk above Loch Tay
16 - The Ben Lawers group
A suprisingly easy route taking in 7 Munros. Popular hills with well managed path network
17 - Carn Mairg group above Invervar and Glen Lyon
A fine circuit with 4 Munros and a Corbett. This area has been the focus of access issues in the recent past
18 - Schiehallion and neighbours
A prominant mountain from all directions. Routes up the 3 nearby Corbetts Meall Tairneachan, Farragon Hill and Beinn a'Chuallaich are also included.
