The Map below shows the routes onto Beinn Dubhchraig and Ben Oss from the Dalrigh hiking car park. Note the main trail goes up through two sections of woodland, said to be hard to follow and boggy in places.

Not sure why nobody seems to hike out the farm road then up onto Beinn Dubhchraig once clear of the trees. There is a burn there and it may be rough at the bottom, must be a reason.

Some hikers try to do the four 3,000ft mountains here in one day, but is a long hike. Getting dropped off at Glen Lochy, hiking over the four mountains, then getting picked up at Dalrigh would be the easiest way to take in the four mountains in one day. Using two cars allows this as well. It would be advised to start at Glen Lochy for this, so you can make sure the River Lochy can be crossed.

See the Ben Lui Page for more information on Ben Lui and Beinn a'Chleibh.

Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter, make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know how to use them.
