Tucked out of sight beyond Loch Lubnaig, Beinn Each doesn't readily spring to mind when you're looking for a quick but quality hill hit within easy reach of Scotland's Central Belt. Yet that's exactly what it is. With a surprisingly craggy character, and an edge-of-the-highlands position that gives it extensive views, this wee Corbett deserves to be better loved. While it could be climbed along with nearby Munro Stuc a' Chroin, via some very rough rocky ground in between, the standard there-and-back summit dash described here is worthwhile in itself.

A mix of farm tracks and footpaths, and the route is clear and easily followed all the way. Minimal boggy ground, but at one point there is a slightly airy rising traverse across a steep slope.
In winter conditions the airy traverse will need a careful footing. Axe and crampons recommended.

The Corbetts, SMC - though this is the definitive guidebook to the Corbetts, the route it describes on Beinn Each is actually not the most obvious and well-used path on the ground. Better to follow our description!
