Quiet riverside picnic site with mountain views

A short distance from the bustle of Tyndrum is this quiet riverside picnic site. There's plenty of room to stretch your legs in fresh mountain air and dip a toe in the icy waters of the River Lochy.

You'll get a fine view of Ben Lui from here, especially of the steep north west ridge and the mountain's impressive high corries where snow lies from autumn until early summer.

Activities

Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chleibh hillwalk

The car park at Glen Lochy is a popular starting point to climb the Munros of Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chleibh. This is a tough route that involves a river crossing and lots of boggy paths, so do prepare accordingly.
