Beinn a Chroin is normally climbed along-side An Caisteal to make a medium days walking. Beinn a Chroin is right in the middle of the Crianlarich hills in a line that follows the A82 up Glen Falloch.
Although slightly less well known than its popular neighbour An Caisteal, Beinn a Chroin does have a good character to it which you definitely feel when you are pulling up its western ridge from Caisteal. This is a superb part of the walk and where the views really start to open out. Beinn a Chroin forms a natural wall at the head of the glen and due to this the wind seems to get funnelled through and can make for some very blustery conditions which have been testified on many occasions by us!
Parking is available at several lay bys along the side of the A82, there are quite a few dotted along so you should be able to get a spot somewhere.
