Done these 2 after downloading the map from this site, the directions were excellent, only had to check the map on one occasion. Only thing I'd add to the directions is when you leave Ben Dubhcraig heading for Ben Oss and begin walking along the Stalkers path, some kind soul has taken the time to create an arrow from stones to make it obvious where to leave the path and head up the grassy slope, we were obviously to busy blethering and walked past it, which is why we checked the map.

One thing I'll remember these two hills for apart from the stunning views along Loch Lomond, is the path it is without doubt the boggiest I've ever been on, a pair of wellies would have been better than boots.
