A’ Ghlas-bheinn is the most westerly Munro in this region and though many of the mountains in this region are remote, this is more accessible, as the A87 at Loch Duich is close by, the mountain standing over the road.
The summit of A’ Ghlas-bheinn is rough, marked with crags and steeps drops to all sides; a great deal of character on such a small Munro. The summit is where three ridges meet: the southern ridge leads to a high col before becoming the north-west ridge of its much larger neighbour, Beinn Fhada. The two are normally climbed together. The northern ridge leads to subsidiary peaks, Creag na Saobhie and Meall Dubh. The western ridge leads down to Dorusduam and easy tracks out to the A87.
All these ridges are steep and craggy require scrambling.
The summit affords wonderful views of Beinn Fhada and its impressive array of corries.
