Ben Lui is the jewel of the Tyndrum Hills, it is a superb hill flaunting both impressive height and features. Ben Lui is a surprisingly tricky one to see as you drive up the A82 just south of Tyndrum you only get a small glimpse of it before it is hidden behind the Ben Oss group again. The most impressive feature of Ben Lui is its huge North east facing corrie named “Coire Gaothach” Unlike most of the southern highlands this deep bowl is able to hold snow well into the spring months. This is the classic route of ascent but involves a fairly long walk in and the climbing is consistently strenuous, however it is definitely worth it!

The easier route starts west of Tyndrum on the A85 road where you tackle Ben Lui via its north west slopes which is a gentle climb almost all the way to the summit. Taking this route it is easy to add the Munro Beinn a’ Chleibh to the day which is connected to Ben Lui via a high bealach.

An interesting feature that Ben Lui can boast is that it has its own gold mine! This used to be heavily mined and a recent attempt was lodged the start up operations again however the plans were knocked back by the National Park Authority.

Parked at Dalrigh and used the bike up the track to save several miles of walking. Went up the W ridge and saw no one till I got to the crowds at the summit. Was a cracker of a day though. Want for a pig out at the Old Flax Mill on the way back just short of Killin junction. Up market carvery and the beef just melted in your mouth.
