Beinn Dubhchraig (978m) and Beinn Oss (1,029m)

Accessed from Dalrigh on the A82 and on a long walk through forests of pine and birch, many people choose to tick off both Dubhchraig and the nearby neighbour Oss.

It can be a wet hike to start with but you can take your mind off the damp by relishing the views, which are almost immediately stunning and include the mountains Ben Lui and Beinn Dorain beyond Tyndrum.

A short but steep ascent to the south-east takes you to the 978m top of Dubhchraig, before you retrace your steps to head west, with great views of Loch Oss, to reach Ben Oss at 1,029m. Ben Oss (and Ben Lui) stand at the head of Glen Fyne, a continuation of the long sea loch, Loch Fyne. The route back to the start is very similar to the way out.

You can find information about the trail up the two Munros here.

We want everyone to enjoy the National Park in a safe and responsible manner. Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other land management activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.

Hiking and hillwalking are risk sports. Always ensure you are prepared before heading out to the hills – information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland.

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority cannot be held responsible for any accidents, injuries or damage sustained whilst hiking in the Park. All persons taking part in such activities do so at their own risk, acknowledging and accepting the risk of accident, injury or damage.
