Crianlarich is a small town situated 6 miles north from Inveranan and is the gateway to the highlands. With Oban to the west, Glen Coe to the north, and Tayside to the East, Crianlarich lies at a crossroads to some of the most spectacular landscapes in Scotland.
The mountain range surrounding Crianlarich contain 7 Munros including one of Scotland’s highest mountains- Ben More, standing at no less than 3843 ft. Another stopping off point for West Highland Way walkers, the area surrounding Crianlarich is rich in history surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
Crianlarich does not offer any notable visitor attractions itself, other than those magnificent mountains - but for those with time to spare the village of Killin, 14 miles to the east, is definitely worh a visit.
