From Glen Lochy car park on A85. Up through forest and Fionn Choiren to the bealach, then Beinn a' Chleibh, Ben Lui and back down the same way. Cloud free summits.welshyboyo31/05/2017
From Glen Lochy car park on A85, through forest than up on to NW ridge, Ben Lui, across to Beinn a'Chleibh, back to bealach, and return through Fionn Choirein and the forest. Path finding in forest not easy - areas of forest operations, new roads and fences not on the maps. Crossing the river Lochy currently very easy - some of the forest paths are wetter.kdbennett07/05/2017

Ben Lui excursion.justin99912/08/2015
Big walk from camp sit in tyndrum. I ended up walking to Dalrigh as I could not cross the track at Tyndrum due to Network Rail enough said. In the coire gaothach I went to far south so ended up cutting across the snows of central gully and then up to a point just west of stone garbh. The North East ridge was easy but fun. I visited both summits, I then went over to Beinn a chleibh and returned to col with Ben Lui I then contoured round to the col with Ben oss. The North East ridge of Oss was fun as I glossed down the snow patches. It was then over the subsidiary top and up Beinn dubhchraig. I reversed to the loch and and went down the path to the north of the allt coire dubhchraig. Lower down this was boggy towards the bottom I turned south crossed the river cononish and picked up the outward path near the bridge under the railway. I returned on the West Highland Way to Tyndrum. I walked 17.5 miles in 9.25 hours with 1830 metres of ascent.isabelle15/06/2015
