Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach Ardrain are situated about 58 miles north of Glasgow, 18 miles north of Callander by Loch Doine and Loch Voil. It is 8 miles from the main road to the hiking car park along the single lane loch road with many passing places.

The image below is of Balquhidder Church with the tallest grave stone being that of Rob Roy and his family. Balquhidder is a small village on the north side of Loch Voil.

Look for signs to Balquhidder and Rob Roy's Grave as this road is easy to miss, as the road goes off to the opposite side, then doubles back under a bridge. Balquhidder and Rob Roy information. Large Image

The image below is of Beinn Tulaichean and the hiking car park at the end of Loch Doine. The public road ends at the car park so you have to walk from here. The style at the car park, as seen below, leads to Ben More, up to the right.

The road straight ahead leads to Beinn Tulaichean and Cruach Ardrain.

The Map below shows the route onto Cruach Ardrain and Beinn Tulaichean from the Loch Doine car park.

Most hikers go over Beinn Tulaichean, on to Cruach Ardrain, then return down between the mountains onto the old farm road, although the route down between the mountains can be rough going in places. Stob Garbh is a sub peak of Cruach Ardrain.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
