Ben Chabhair

Ben Chabhair's Height:933m
Summit Grid Reference:NN 367 179
Translation:Hill of the Hawk
Start Point:Car park at Beinglas Farm Campsite

 

Situated about 4km north-east of Loch Lomond is Beinn Chabhair,  “Hill of the Hawk”, a mountain of the Crianlarich and Balquhidder group in the Southern Highlands. With a height of 933m, Beinn Chabhair is the smallest of the Crianlarich mountain group. The mountain is grassy and becomes craggy higher up. Even though it is hidden by other hills it becomes visible as you progress up the hill nearby and offers great views from the summit to Loch Lomond. Some interesting features of Beinn Chabhair are the Beinglas Waterfall and the Beinglas Burn. 

 

The walk is quite long but beautiful. The most popular route starts from the car park at Beinglas Farm Campsite in Inverarnan. Follow the A82 a few hundred metres to the north and there is a bridge crossing River Falloch from where the path leads to the mountain. The lower paths of the mountain are grassy and can become quite boggy. Higher up the paths become better.

There is also a possibility to climb Beinn Chabhair from Inverlocharig which is seven kilometres east of the summit. Follow the path along River Inverlocharig and you reach the mountain after about 6km. However, the other starting point from Beinglass is the easier approach if you are intending just to do Ben Chabhair only. Even though most people only climb Beinn Chabhair, it is also possible to combine the walk with other hills such as An Caisteal; the small neighbour of Beinn Chabhair.

 

For those who are interested in other walks, there are many hills and mountains nearby such as Stobinian and Ben More which are situated south east of Crianlarich. Also the Arrochar Alps are not far away and offer some more challenging hillwalking with great mountains such as The Cobbler, which is a Corbett but one of Scotland's most iconic mountains, and Ben Ime.

 

Transport

 

By car it is possible to get to Inverarnan from Glasgow by driving first to Dumbarton and by following the A82 past Tarbet until you reach Inverarnan. By public transport just use the bus connection from Glasgow to Fort William and Oban. The bus then stops on the A82 in Inverarnan.
