Beinn Heasgarnich

Hills & Mountains

    Beinn Heasgarnich is a single Munro in the west of Perthshire.

    Beinn Heasgarnich lies between the head of Glen Lochay and Loch Lyon and is a massive sprawling mountain often described as a `whaleback`. In more romantic vein, the Gaelic translation of the name means ` peak of the roaring waterfall of the horses` and, for those that care to explore the character of the mountain, there are secret waterfalls.

    For Munro baggers, Creag Mhor (big peak) looms close by at the head of Glen Lochay, a steeper, more shapely mountain.
