Benygloe (Beinn a' Ghlo) from the south west of Bridge of Tilt

The Beinn a' Ghlò mountain range is to the east of Glen Tilt and approximately seven miles north west of Blair Atholl. It is made up of three separate Munros. (A Munro is a Scottish mountain or distinct peak of 3000ft high or more.) The most southerly, and smallest, peak is Carn Liath at 3198ft (975m). The middle peak is Braigh Coire Chruinn-Bhalgain at 3510ft (1070m). The most northerly peak is Carn nan Gabhar. It is also the highest at 3677ft (1121m).

The mountains are made up of red granite and as a result a coarse pink grit can be found around them.

There are approximately 19 different corries around Beinn a' Ghlo, and it is claimed that a rifle can be fired in one corrie without being heard in another.
