Beinn Dorain to Beinn a’ Chreachain, 4 Munros
September 22 @ 7:30 am - 6:00 pm£65.00
Beinn Dorain, Beinn an Dothaidh, Beinn Achaladair and Beinn a’ Chreachain lie to the east of Bridge of Orchy and form an impressive ridge line that can be completed in one single traverse starting from the south with Beinn Dorain and finishing at the north with Beinn a’ Chreachain.
The day will start by meeting at the parking place at Achallader. Here we will arrange the cars to ferry us to the beginning of the walk at Bridge of Orchy train station. The remainder of the cars will be left at Achallader to return us back to Bridge of Orchy at the end of the day.
We will start this fantastic walk from Bridge of Orchy train station where a path leads off east towards Coire an Dothaidh. Eventually the path steepens to climb the headwall that will allow us to gain the bealach between Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh. From the bealach we now change direction to south where a steady climb leads to the summit of Beinn Dorain, the first munro of the dayand a fine view point over the hills of Tyndrum.
From Beinn Dorain we now retrace our steps back to the bealach, continue north to the summit of Beinn an Dothaidh, the second munro of the day and a fine view point of Beinn Dorain to the south and the ridge line of Beinn Achaladair the next munro of this epic outting to the north.
A steep drop to the east leads to another bealach and another steady climb to gain the South Top of Beinn Achaladair. Now in front of us lies good ridge walking that will lead us to the true summit of Beinn Achaladair, the third munro of the day. We now continue along this impressive ridge line to gain the summit of Beinn a’ Chreachain, the forth and final munro of this epic ridge walk.
Descent is to the northwest, passing Lochan a’ Chreachain to the railway line, here we will use a bridge to cross the railway lines and then cross the river to gain a 4×4 track that will safely return us to the parked cars at Achallader.
