Beinn a’Chroin is a mountain located 6 km (3.1 mi) south of Crianlarich in the Stirling area. It is situated at the head of Coire Earb and is attached to neighbouring An Caisteal by a high col. It qualifies as a Munro, with its height being 942 m (3,090 ft).
Its prominence is 137 m (449 ft). Until very recently, a point marked with a large cairn to the east was regarded as the highest point. It is steep and surprisingly rocky little mountain, with its craggy slopes and summit stretching round the tiny stretch of water named Lochain a’Chroin. Most guide books recommend that it is climbed from Coire Earb or from An Caisteal. It can be also climbed from the east, beginning at the end of the public road.
