Driving along the A86 in Glen Spean, Beinn a'Chlachair is the dominant mountain looking across Loch Laggan. From this angle it appears as a long whaleback with gently rising slopes - don't let that fool you, there are several corries and much intrigue up here, including a vast cornice that forms aboe Coire Mor Chlachair in winter.

There are several possibilities for accessing Beinn a'Chlachair, athough probably the finest is from Loch Laggan from where fine estate tracks reach into the wild area, excellent for biking on.
