Bridge of Orchy Hills

The Bridge of Orchy Munros lie just north of Tyndrum on the A82 road running from Glasgow to Inverness. They consist of 5 Munros which is commonly broken down into 3 outings. Beinn Dorain, Beinn an Dothaidh, Beinn Achaladair and Beinn a Chreachain form a large curve and are known as "The Great Wall of Rannoch" protecting the western end of the remote Rannoch Moor. Beinn Mhanach lies separate from its more famous neighbours and is usually climbed on its own in a single outing.

The Bridge of Orchy Munros are grand and attract the eye of anyone travelling north on the A82 especially Beinn Dorain with its long elegant slopes. The Glasgow to Mallaig train line and west highland way long distance walk also pass through the area.

The town of Bridge of Orchy itself really only consists of the hotel and train station but further amenities can be found in Tyndrum around 5 miles south.

These Munros are bound by Loch Tulla to the west and Loch Lyon to the east and both make for superb views from the Munro summits. You are right on the edge of Rannoch Moor and the feeling of eeriness and remoteness can definitely be found wondering these superb lonely glens...never a bad thing!
