From parking at Bridge of Orchy, up the Tourist route to Carn Sasunnaich, Beinn Dorain, then back to Carn Sasunnaich and out on good path to Meall Garbh. Pleasant grass slope, down NE with only a few small boulders and one teeny cragg that can easily be avoided to NE, to Meall Tionaill. Lovely grassy vantage point. Easy grass walk back to col roughly at same height. Tourist path up Beinn an Dothaidh and along to West Top. S ish bearing down to meet up path very near col and back down path to car. Bad forecast, but stayed dry to last part of descent and good visibility throughout. 17km 1300m climb.Lynnebe22/05/2024
From parking at Bridge of Orchy. Beinn Dorain N Top, Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh. Windy and snowing from about 850m, although snowline was slightly higher. No views from any tops today. With Gillianrichard6914/04/2024
A more straightforward munro day today as I have to drive home this evening. Beinn an Dothaidh West Top and summit, Beinn Dorain North Top and summit, but I did make an extension to Meall Tionail which I enjoyed, some good views walking around what is probably the more dramatic side of the range. Notes: They say this is a good mountain to view from the road, from here the view of the road is probably not so exciting! But there are good views, just a little hazy now. /Dmeltdiceburg18/06/2023

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

Solo, running, glorious blue sky, sunshine, firm snow. The long ridge S to bag Dorain was trying, with softer snow, ups and downs, seemed a very long way. Way back N not so bad, and descent very pleasant knowing what I'd achieved, though R eye had a pink tinge for next few days as I hadn't worn sunglasses, d'oh! Back to BoO Hotel, one of their new outside rooms where I'd argued and got a special wifi router!NorfolkPT2101/04/2018
