Beinn Teallach from Beinn a'Chaorainn

Beinn Teallach

Munro mountain above Glen Spean

With a height of 914m, Beinn Teallach just scrapes into Munro's tables. Statistics can be deceptive however, as routes to this mountain's summit from Glen Spean require a fair bit of effort.

Beinn Teallach's modest height of 914m, which scrapes it into Munro's tables, gives the impression of a quick day out. However, with long gently rising hillsides, expect something a longer, particularly if river-levels are in spate as a detour will be needed !

Approaches from the south up Beinn Teallach are through forestry, a fair amount of which has been recently felled. The area to the north is remote and wild. There are paths on Beinn Teallach hillsides and slopes, often rather damp underfoot.

A hike up Beinn Teallach can be combined with its higher and larger neighbour Beinn a'Chaorainn for a fine circular hillwalk from Roughburn near the Loch Laggan dam. For keen Munro-baggers, and if transport can be arranged between start and finish points, extending this route to include Creag Meagaidh and its neighbours make for an excellent long day's hiking !
