Hill features

Garbh Bheinn is a steep mountain in the Ardgour area in the west of Scotland. It is much more prominent, in both a general and topographic sense, than many Munros, but because it is under 3000 feet and in a geographically isolated area, it is relatively infrequently climbed. Like other summits in the Ardgour area, it has been cited by those who deride the obsession with Munro bagging. From the summit, there are extensive views east to Ben Nevis and the mountains of Glen Coe, and west to several islands.

Sorry, There are no Route Cards associated with this hill
Needs updated. While Sgian Dubh is given Vdiff in the Garry Latte Guide there is no way that this is the case. The Clasp is E1 in both SMC and Garry latter while given HVS on here. Definitely more E1 than HVS!

Needs an update. 67 routes on a wide variety of crags in the OLD Glencoe Guide!
