Beinn Dubhchraig & Ben Oss

See Map of Route

See Profile of Route

While it is perfectly feasible to do Ben Lui, Beinn a'Chleibh, Ben Oss and Beinn Dubhchraig in one long day, many prefer to split this group into two, with Oss and Dubhchraig as a one-day, two-Munro walk. This also obviates having to make awkward transport arrangements. Start near Dalrigh, just off the A82 (NN 343 291). Gaiters are a good idea!

From the car park turn south and cross the River Fillan to splash along a rough track leading west to a bridge over the rail track. About 300m further on quit the track and continue to a footbridge. Cross this and continue up a path southwest through the delightful pinewood with stiles eventually leading to open slopes above. Continue on a path on the northwest side of the Allt Coire Dubhchraig to cross a third and final fence. Head up the grassy coire to gain the steepening slopes just below the summit of Beinn Dubhchraig (978m).

From the summit head down northwest to gain a small lochan at about 907m, then more steeply down to the col. Go up and west then gradually follow the ridge southwest to gain the summit of Ben Oss at 1029m. The return is by the same route, dropping down from the small lochan before the summit of Beinn Dubhchraig to avoid steep ground below the col proper.
