UK Area: Scotland
Details: This is a track log of a SW to NE traverse of the 4 Bridge of Orchy Munros. Start point is at Achallader farm where there is a large car park near the old ruined tower. From there it is a 10K cycle down to the south side of Beinn Dorain, initially on the A82, transfering to the old Military road at Bridge of Orchy [Part of the West Highland way - certainly felt a lot safer cycling down this than on the A82] Access to the South ridge of Beinn Dorain involves a crossing of the Railway line [there are a few underpasses if you do not fancy having to scale the barbed wire fence either side of the rail line] The grassy south slope of Beinn Dorain is fairly steep but the gradient eases off once above 600m, from here it is a pleasent walk to the summit. There are a few crags and boulder fields near the summit but no technical difficulties. From the summit of Beinn Dorain follow the well worn path north down to the col and then up to Beinn an Dothaidh. From the summit of Beinn an Dothaidh go over the 993m top and down the east ridge to the col above Coire Daingean. From here pick up the faint path that goes over Beinn Achaladair and onto Beainn a'Chreachain. Apart from a short steep section on the east side of Beinn Achaladair it is a fine high level ridge walk with good views over Rannoch Moor. From the summit of Beinn a'Chreachain go down the NE ridge and drop down into Coire an Lochain. There is a rather muddy waymarked path down the west side of the Allt Coire an Lochain and through the Crannach woods which eventually joins a landrover track leading back to the start point. Distance approx 34K [10K on bike]. 2030m of ascent . Time just on 10hrs
