Webteam walk to raise funds for the Beatson Pebble Appeal.Chris Mac16/09/2016

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
Parked at forest car park GR239 279. Waded across the river and stooped under the railway bridge. Followed the Northern side of the Eas Daimh. Totally missed the crossing, marked by a small cairn at GR2424 2748. Although this is a longer route, it is less muddy/boggy than the other route. Followed the N side of the stream all the way up to the gate at GR 253 275. Headed South a little to avoid the steepest slope and then up the grassy slopes to the summit of Ben Lui. Down to the bealach and up to Beinn a' Chleibh. Back to the bealach and down to the gate at GR 250264. Followed East side of stream all the way back to the crossing at GR2424 2748. Glorious day, T-Shirt weather, even at the top, great views.tsharp12/06/2015

Short stopover at Crianlarich before Islay. Approached from NW, over River Lochy and up through forest - beware some forest paths marked on OS 1:25k no longer exist and new deer fence erected along forest edge - deer gate at NN 25375 27533. Once out on open hillside, faint track can be followed to gain ridge at NN 25608 25865, after which we did Ben Lui first then on to this one before back tracking to car park beside A85. A wet day and a slog on lost paths through forest - along with Ben Lui, not our favourite Munros!jonglew02/06/2014

With Andy C., as a circular route from Dalrigh via Cononish, along with Ben Lui, Ben Oss and Beinn Dubhchraig. Fantastic weather. Beinn a'Chleibh is a bit of an afterthought to Ben Lui - subMarilyn rather than full Marilyn, although it is on the Munros list!milngavie_kenny26/05/2012

Was here in 89, but very misty and never convinced I found the summit, so came back to make sure in the big pre-finish tidy up. Glad I did, brilliant spring day, floweres in the corrie amazing.Colinmac200507/06/2008

Did Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chleibh together with Allan on a fairly nice day. Major detour to get to footbridge and some bushwhacking in forest on way down. Went through river on way back rather than detouring again!jonbowyer23/04/2006
