The Crianlarich Hills are a large group of mountains in the Highlands, running south and east of Crianlarich in Perthshire, and west as far as Loch Lomond.

The range is mostly within Perthshire. The boundaries of this range of hills are reckoned as Strath Fillan to the north, Loch Doine and Loch Voil to the south and Loch Lomond to the west, which thus takes in the northernmost bulge of Dunbartonshire also. The Crianlarich Hills are within the Breadalbane section of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and it contains the highest mountains in the park. The mountains also are located in an area where the landscape becomes ever more remote and mountainous as landscapes go further into a wilderness starting from Tarbet on Loch Lomond.

The highest mountain in the range is Ben More, 3,852 feet, which is also the highest in the national park.

The mountains of the range include six munros, all in Perthshire:

Stob Binnein
Ben More 3,852 feet NN432244
Stob Binnein 3,822 feet NN434227
Cruach Ardrain 3,432 feet NN409212
An Caisteal 3,264 feet NN378193
Beinn Tulaichean 3,104 feet NN416196
Beinn a' Chroin 3,084 feet NN394186

To the west of Strath Fillan, also overlooking Croianlarich, are the Tyndrum Hills of Perthshire and Argyllshire.
