    Beinn Luibhean Walk

    Some may overlook Beinn Luibhean due to its position next to its towering neighbour, Beinn Ìme; however, this hill features a swift, challenging ascent and fabulous views across the Arrochar Alps, making it a walk well-worth adding to your list! The ascent features a pleasant, albeit steep, climb up grassy slopes with a lovely stretch from midway up the Rest and Be Thankful Pass. Panoramic views from the summit at 674 m invite hillwalkers to enjoy a natural canvas painted by Loch Restil, Beinn an Lochain, The Cobbler, and of course, the highest mountain in the Arrochar Alps, Beinn Ìme.

    Route Description for Beinn Luibhean Walk

    The Beinn Luibhean Walk is an excellent opportunity to tackle one of Scotland’s Corbett mountains and experience the might and majesty of the Arrochar Alps. This is a great, moderate hillwalk, ideal for those looking to work their way up towards climbing one of Beinn Luibhean’s taller neighbours. The walk unfolds on a mostly pathless course, up the grassy slopes of Beinn Luibhean to reach the summit at 674 m. Although the ascent is relatively short, it’s a steep climb that features some boggy sections, so proper waterproof footwear is recommended.

    The walk commences from the parking area off the A83 and begins by passing through the gate found at the back of the car park and then crossing the bridge above the burn. Pick up the path that veers left from here, passing through one more gate before embarking on an ascent of the hillside. The sprawling, grassy slopes of Beinn Luibhean’s south ridge await as you continue uphill towards the summit, enjoying the incredibly spectacular views that unfold around you. A small plateau forms the summit of the peak and opens to incredible views all the way down to Loch Restil and out towards The Cobbler, Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ìme. Revel in the fresh mountain air and congratulate yourself for reaching the summit before descending via the same route, retracing your steps to return to the car park.
