Loch Lomond to Loch Tay

Munros between Loch Lomond to Loch Tay==

The area covering Loch Lomond to Loch Tay has 20 Munros in the southern edge of the Highlands. The area is bounded on the south by the extensive flat plain of Central Scotland through which flow the River Forth and its tributaries. To the north the headwaters of the River Tay in Strath Fillan and Glen Dochart, together with Loch Tay, form the boundary, which continues south-east along the River Tay to Perth. In the west the area of this section extends almost to the western seaboard near Loch Fyne and Loch Awe.

In the view north from the central plain the peaks of Ben Lomond, Stuc a' Chroin and Ben Vorlich stand out prominently, and these are the three southern outliers of this area. To the north-west of Ben Lomond, on the far side of Loch Lomond, is the small group of peaks known as the Arrochar Alps. The most prominent of them is The Cobbler, but it fails by about 30 metres to reach Munro height and is the best known of the Corbetts. The four highest peaks of the Arrochar Alps - Beinn Ime, Beinn Narnain, Ben Vane and Ben Vorlich - form a compact group at the head of Loch Long and on the west side of Loch Lomond.

Further north, at the head of the loch and on the east side of Glen Falloch, there are three mountains - An Caisteal, Beinn Chabhair and Beinn a' Chroin - which are most easily approached from Glen Falloch, but can also be climbed from the end of the public road west from Balquhidder to Inverlochlarig. To the east of these three, Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean form a north to south ridge between Inverlochlarig and Crianlarich, and to their east are the high twin peaks of Ben More and Stob Binnein. These two are the highest mountains in Section 1 and the outline of their conical summits rising side by side above their neighbours is the most familiar landmark in the Southern Highlands.

To the west of Crianlarich and south of Tyndrum, Ben Lui and its three neighbouring hills - Ben Oss, Beinn Dubhchraig and Beinn a' Chleibh - form a long ridge between the head of Loch Lomond and Glen Lochy. Ben Lui, in particular, is a fine peak whose north-east corrie holds snow until long into spring and gives the mountain a very alpine appearance.

The two outliers of Section 1 lie at opposite ends of the area. To the west, far up Glen Fyne, is Beinn Bhuidhe, the highest point in an extensive tract of rough high moorland to the south of Dalmally. Far to the east, the flat-topped Ben Chonzie crowns a wide area of equally flat hills between Strath Earn and Loch Tay.
