Beinn Mhanach is a hidden Munro sitting at the remote western end of Glen Lyon and shielded on its west by the Great Wall of Rannoch. At 953 metres high its best views are to its six very close neighbours, all above 1,000 metres, and eastwards along Loch Lyon. The route begins with an 8km walk in along a gravel road that criss-crosses the Allt Kinglass as it makes its way up Auch Glen. There is a total of eight fords to be negotiated; two or three could cause problems if the water level is high, so best to go after a dry spell. The ascent to the flat, mossy summit is up steep, grass-covered slopes, gaining 570 metres in just 1.5km. The return route retraces the outward route. It is possible to bike in to the base of the hill.
