Ace day with Joe. From Bridge of Orchy, up Beinn Dorain to Beinn an Dothaidh, continued onto Beinn Achaladair. Climb up to Beinn a' Chreachain looked daunting but was actually fine. Then descended to Lon na Cailliche via 813m spot height. Slogged up to Beinn Mhanach and descended to the south to track to meet West Highland Way back to Bridge of Orchy.JonathanConey06/07/2019

Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh. GLSS hillwalk.killiedaft05/07/2014
Walked up only path from Bridge of Orhcy on clear day, some very boggy patches before the main climb, walked up along Beinn Dorains many false summits until the proper top, great views and patches of snow everywhere, walked back down to col and climbed the very wet Beinn An Dothaidh. Had to hurry off the summit because cloud came down, it was pouring with rain before we got to the car. Brilliant 9.5 mile walk after bagging Broad Law and Culter Fell the day previous.DanTrig09/06/2014

What a perfect day in the hills, blue sky, minimal wind and NO rain. I used spikeys on a patch of snow up to the col at 744 but after that I managed to just kick in on the snowy patches. Busy day on the hills amazing a little bit of sunshine and everyone comes out. Ben Lui looks wonderful from here. Can see Ben Nevis & Schiehallion.LizzieG19/04/2013
