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

Beinn an Dothaidh and Beinn Dorain from Bridge of Orchy.rhalstead07/07/2013
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

Climbed with Beinn an Dothaidh on a sunny 2nd November 2008. There were great views from the top, although the ascent was a little hard going due to the somewhat unclear route to the top and snow/verglas. The snow under blue skies and clear air was paid oKevin2903502/11/2008

From Bridge of Orchy, after doing Beinn an Dothaidh. Very hot day, set off at 7am to beat the heat. Arrived here for 11:30 and spent four hours by the cairn enjoying the views and the pleasantly cooling breeze. A blissful day.Jake99428/07/2008
