Beinn Chabhair and Beinn a' Chroin from Derrydaroch. Wet, Windy, Pathless and Painful. Great fun. AJ, AW.Fred Windsor11/09/2019
Ochils Mountaineering Club meet at the Crianlarich cottage. On Sunday 07/07/19, I hiked up Beinn Chabhair (933m) with Mandy Liversage, accessed from the Drovers Inn at Inverarnan.

Book time of 2.50 is well short of being accurate on a hot day. It took me nearly 5 to get to the top carrying ice axe and crampons. 3 hours back. Wonderful hot day with fast melting snow top hill views.tallblond24/03/2017

Solo hike, walked a bit far along Lochan Beinn Chabhair, I came up onto the ridge to the east of the summit, route finding was easy enough but the cloud was low so using compass & gps. After returning the route I should have ascended by I am pleased I tood a different route, the ascent was easier than the descent. Quite wet at times and very boggy.LizzieG30/06/2013
Solo from Glen Falloch. The deer fence collapsed under me on the way up past the campsite. Yes its broken and its my fault.Shutterlag01/06/2013
