Bridge of Orchy-Beinn Dorain-Beinn nam Fuaran-Beinn a'Chaisteil-Tyndrum. Unusually dry underfoot. Went for very direct descent. Had spotted green spur from train, but was frazzled at summit and instead descended through scree (too far round to the north) and what normally would have been a significant burn.campagvelocet22/07/2013

Solo. From A82 at boundary between Argyll and Bute, and Stirling Districts. Walked N on West Highland Way and then up Auch Gleann to pass under the railway viaduct and up the track up Glen Coralan. At the end of track struck up the hillside to reach the SE ridge of Beinn a' Chaisteil. There is a fence on the ridge, which is a boundary. The summit cairn is a few metres W of the point where the fence takes a right angled bend. Continued to Beinn nam Fuaran. Weather good clear and dry. Some fresh snow on the highest parts.pwbellarby17/11/1996
