Ben Lui, the highest of a group of four Munros just west of Crianlarich, is considered by some to be one of the finest Munros of the Southern Highlands. Certainly, on a clear day the mountains around Loch Lomond to the south, the Crianlarich hills to the east, Rannoch Moor to the northeast, and the mountains of Glencoe and even Ben Nevis to the north are all visible. The height, and, depending upon the approach, the distance to back to the nearest road, give a sense of remoteness difficult to feel otherwise this far south.
One of two main approaches to the mountain, this path is very much the scenic route up Ben Lui. Reached using an access track from the community woodland car park just off the A82 near Cononish Farm, the approach presents the most spectacular aspect of Ben Lui rising as two ridges from Coire Ghaothiach, with the munro itself nestling between Beinn Chuirn (to the right), Ben Oss, and Beinn Dubhcraig.
A large cairn marks the true summit, providing spectacular views in all directions in good weather.
