I had these penned in to do when i stayed in Tyndrum for a few claggy wet days in June,but bottled out after reading previous reports about the terrain & went elsewhere instead. Think it was a wise choice after seeing your photo's! A shame really as they look like cracking mountains in that area.
Maybe save them for one of the summer days next April!

Super, well detailed report as ever. I had a bit of a palaver (fancy that!) trying to get up to Dubhcraig. On my first attempt I missed the boggy turn-off and headed for Fiarach instead and then on the second attempt I had the gallant Gagfax guiding me through the bog and fortunately up the correct hill this time. Again the conditions were atrocious so we decided to leave Oss for another day. Despite feeling like an eejit for missing the turn-off, one of the forum users said that going via Fiarach was actually a really good route as it misses out most of the bog!
Yes you could easily add Oss onto Ben Lui and Ben a Chleib (?sp) but remember you will still have a very very wet bogtrot at the end of it!!!
I still have to go back to Oss, so will be looking for any handy hints if anyone has them

Had similar conditions last February but at least it was frozen towards the top. The woods are a great walk though.

Dodgy bridge it's coming on a treat as when I did these there were no railway sleepers just the two rails and not wanting to split my difference had to cross the burn. And you all know how I love we feet not. Only one soggy foot fortunately

This is a good alternative to the bog. There's also an interesting route up Ben Oss from the bridge, up the W bank of the Allt Coire Chruinn and then a vague spur leading to the col between Oss and its 941m top.
