Mam na Gualainn

Sitting above Loch Leven and and directly in front of the high Mamores range, Mam na Gualainn is a fine little hill.


Main route summary


The summit is very accessible from the shore of the loch, where a fairly direct and easy ascent can be made up its grass covered western shoulder to a summit with vast expansive views.

To avoid a sea-level start, an alternative is to head in on a longer route from the north on the West Highland Way which begins at a height of around 200m.
