Beinn a'Choin

Routes up the Corbett west of Loch Katrine

Although not too far from Scotland's populated Central Belt, this is a remote and fairly inaccessible area, so much so, the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon took place here in 2002.

In the heart of Rob Roy country, the area is full of little gems - check out the 'Local info & more' links below.

Main route summary


The hills in and around here are rugged, grass covered and without paths, Beinn a'Choin is no exception !

Starting from the shores of Loch Arklet, the route winds its way over grass and rush to climb to fine views. Finish the day off at the Pier Cafe on Loch Katrine.
