Beinn Laoigh (Ben Lui) arguably holds to the title of Scotland's most splendid mountain south of Rannoch. Its ascent was combined in the 3 neighbouring Munros to form a good mountain day.

Starting point : Glen Lochy GR 239278

After leaving the car park on the A85, the River Lochy was crossed and then the Eas Daimh stream was followed  through the forest above.  Once on open hillside the ascent to the belach between the first two peaks of the day was easy and the broad ridge taken to the summit of Beinn a Chleibh, The weather then closed in with thick mist, limiting the  scope for photographs. After retracing footsteps to the belach,  another broad ridge lead to the summit of Ben Laoight. The south easterly descent after Ben Laoight was considerable before having to navigate through the crags and outcrops that lead to the summit of Ben Oss. Again a long and steep descent followed the summit and then the the final climb of the day lead to the summit of Beinn Dubhchraig. The descent from this peak to the A82 was long and complicated due forestry activities and fast flowing streams but the effort was rewarded with some great fish and chips in Tyndrum. (Real Food Cafe).
