On this page you'll find a list of hill-walking routes in the Southern Highlands of Scotland. The routes are grouped into mountain ranges, with the most northerly at the start of the page and the most southerly at the bottom of the page.

To help you find routes, on a separate page, you can filter all these routes in the Southern Highlands by distance, ascent, difficulty of terrain, quality of scenery and even by Munro and Corbett count.


The most southerly Munro. Quiet first thing in the morning and views are vast and superb from the summit.

Popular peaks west of Loch Lomond. Some interesting scrambling to climb through to The Cobbler's summit

A rugged Corbett peak above vast areas of forestry. Fine tracks lead in, weird rocks higher up and plane wreckage !

A hill to leave for a fine day as the views from the summit are excellent and the terrain will have you lost in mist

A choice of good tracks in. With grassy ridges, an excellent runnable route over 4 Munros can be enjoyed on clear days.

Distinctive landmark mountains. Bag all 7 munros in fairly long route. Or take more time on three separate shorter outings

A rugged Corbett above Loch Katrine. A real sense of remoteness here, although Ben Lomond is just around the corner.

Good access paths and fences to follow making for two popular hills near Callander.

Many different possibilities for accessing these hills, but from Edinchip they can be combined into a fine circuit.

Easy enjoyable walking and a bit of scrambling. Stuc a'Chroin has a classic hillrace in May

An enjoyable easy summer's afternoon walk heading direct up Ben Chonzie. Longer routes include the neighbouring Corbett Auchnafree Hill (coming soon).

A terrific circuit, taking in 5 Munros. All summits in the range are fine vantage points for views over Rannoch Moor to Glencoe and beyond.

North-east of Tyndrum there are 5 Munros and 3 Corbetts, which combined together make for a challenging hill-walking adventure. The hills can be ticked off in smaller chunks !

Two very different Munros and 3 Corbetts. Fine views, with Meall Buidhe being an excellent vantage point to look over Rannoch

On one side these appear as characterless lumps, from the other they have crags and rocky outcrops.

Meall nan Tarmachan is at the eastern end of a lovely ridge above Loch Tay. Winter transforms the ridge into something quite challenging. Options to just bag the Munro, hike the complete ridge, or run part it in a race.

Popular hills with a well managed path network to curb errosion on Ben Lawers and Beinn Ghlas. All 7 Munros in the Lawers range can be bagged in one outing if you can arrange transport, or split into two circular routes returning to the starting points.

North of Invervar in Glen Lyon, there is a fine circuit of 4 Munros including Carn Mairg and Carn Gorm. The route can easily be shortened in poor weather, or extended in fine weather to include the nearby Corbett peak of Beinn Dearg.

Schiehallion is a prominent mountain from all directions. And very popular too ! Nearby, there are several Corbetts, including Meall Tairneachan, Farragon Hill and Beinn a'Chuallaich.
