Creach Bheinn

Corbett mountain above Loch Creran

East of Loch Linnhe, the lands of Appin and Benderloch are split by Loch Creran. Near the head of this loch, Creach Bheinn stands overshadowed by mighty Beinn Sgulaird which guards the approaches to Glencoe and beyond.

Creach Bheinn is a rough hill sitting above vast swathes of forestry. The old A828 which heads around Loch Creran is much quieter since the bridge by Creagan was built and it is from this roadside that the easiest and most direct routes begin.

The easiest route starts from Druimavuic, and is the same as if heading to Beinn Sgulaird from this direction - therefore fairly straightforward to combine these two hills into one outing.
