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.
You’ll often find yourself in locations such as working farms, estates and areas protected for their conservation value, and we hope all our visitors will act responsibly and respect their surroundings, while having a safe and enjoyable time in the National Park.
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.
