Mam na Gualainn stands in a solitary position above the northern shore of Loch Leven. In contrast to Garbh Bheinn, the rocky Corbett peak on the opposite side of Loch Leven, Mam na Gualainn's slopes are gentle and grass-covered.

The easiest and most direct route up Mam na Gualainn is from Callert on the shores of Loch Leven and follows a wet mucky trudge up its western shoulder. Expansive views from the grassy summit !

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.
