The Crianlarich Munros
Tuesday 13th - Thursday 15th April 2021
ABOUT THE EVENT
The Crianlarich Munros are brilliant! Massively accessible with a range of approaches. They are also big so despite being in such an accessible location we are soon high up and away from the real world.
North from Glasgow, there is the Arrochar Alps range and then the Crianlarichs.
Typically the 7 Crianlarich hills are tackled over 3 separate big days and that's what we'll do.
The biggest day is the western trio which also has some off piste and scrambly sections.
I've done these Munros in the usual guidebook manner, and done all 7 in a massive day. They are great adventures out. Six of them form nice pairs which are logical to do together. Once up on the col between the two summits, the two tops can be ticked off easily. The outlier - Beinn Chabhair - can be combined with An Caisteal and Beinn a'Chroin. Ben More and Stob Binnein are the last two mountains over 1,100m heading south. There is nothing higher in England or Wales.
Cruach Ardrain (1,046m / 3,432ft) and Beinn Tulaichean (946m / 3,104ft)
Beinn Chabhair (933m / 3,061ft), An Caisteal (995m / 3,264ft) and Beinn a'Chroin (940m / 3,084ft)
Ben More (1,174m / 3,852ft) and Stob Binnein (1,165m / 3,822ft)
09:00 at different spots in the area depending on which Munros we tackle (weather will dictate).
However, for a view of the area from Google Maps, please click here (This will open in a new tab).
Difficulty: There are good approach tracks but steep in places. There are small sections of ungraded scrambling as well as some off-piste sections.
Cost: The full trip costs £295 per person for all three days (with discounts for bulk booking). Under 18s are welcome so long as they are accompanied by their parent/guardian.
If you only want to come on one of the days that's fine and the trip costs £110 for the day (with discounts for bulk booking).
Please note that if there is a particular Munro you are interested in, you can specify when you book, I cannot guarantee which day we will attempt that particular hill as this may be weather dependent. There is no guarantee we will summit.
Numbers: I can take a maximum of 10 and a minimum of 2.

What are the Terms & Conditions?
I've got some more general questions...
How do I get there?
Crianlarich is accessible by road or train. It is north of Glasgow on the A82 and west of Callander/Perth/Stirling on the A85. There is a good rail link (including the sleeper from Euston) with a station at Crianlarich
If you want to chat to me about the event then please feel free to do so - email is a good start as I'm often out and about with limited phone reception.
If you don't like the idea of the online booking or would prefer to pay a 10% deposit for now, that's fine as I can simply raise an invoice. Please note that this has an additional £5 non-refundable administration fee.
Or simply click 'Book Now' and follow the instructions. You'll get an automated confirmation reply but I'll follow that up when I get back to civilisation to say thanks and with more detail about the event.
Please ensure you've read the Terms and Conditions and you are aware of what you need to bring by downloading the gear list.
Please check carefully which tickets you are booking and for how many. We try and be flexible but of course that brings loads of options!
