Big loop with JanGrimpeur123406/06/2020
At last I got another Munro today, second for the year, with Alex McBride. I drove up the Ochils Mounteering Club Cottage in Crainlarich and left my car there, with Alex driving up toward the Bridge of Orchy for Beinn Mhanach (953m). This involved a long walk in along the floor of Glen Auch to the foot of Beinn Mhanach at 353m, just at the start of the hydro works for Loch Lyon. Then a long slog up a reasonably steep snow covered hillside, which I was quite uncomfortable zig zagging up at times, even with my (cheap) cramptons on. Cloud cover was thick after about 850m, with no visibility on top. I tried to descent northwest onto the leeside, but thankfully Alex convinced me to return the same way, which surprisingly didnít seem as bad as the ascent, 8 hours all in.chillyman806/03/2020

Auch viaduct (cycled from Tyndrum) - up glen to Srath Tarabhan - Beinn Mhanach - Beinn a' Chuirn - back same way.Mark Jackson22/08/2019
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

Ascent from Achaladair Farm. Long route up to bealach then traversed round Beinn Achaladair up to bealach then rounded summit. Back via same route. Sunny, clear, little wind. Wonderful.Langbank 06/10/2018

From Auchquadbarrel07/01/2018
Parked on A82 near entrance to Auch track. This has more fords than Dagenham, but they were negotiable dryshod. Snow above 2,000' and a fierce NW wind, blowing snow plumes from the summit. Superb views, including the surprise view along Loch Lyon. Too cold to hang about above the snow line, though.Nick Down112/11/2017

Parked at Pubil (end of public road in Glen Lyon) and cycled track along N shore of Loch Lyon to the ford in Gleann Meurain (NN394426) (easily crossed in current dry weather). Then up Beinn Mhanach and traversed across to Beinn a'Chuirn. Retraced to col between the two, and roughly followed the old fence line down to Lon na Cailliche (col to Beinn Achaladair). Then more or less straight up to Achaladair S Top and along ridge to main summit. Continued along ridge, down to col with Beinn a'Chreachain, ascended Meall Buidhe, then Beinn a'Chreachain. Retraced from there and along to the 961m top, before descending grassy slopes back to track in Gleann Cailliche, and return to Pubil.kdbennett11/05/2017
