Left The Bridge of Orchy Hotel Car Park at 9am with my mates Davie and Jen on a fantastic sunny sunday. A very straight forward route to the bealach between Beinn Dorain and Beinn Dothaidh, we turned right and headed up Dorain first as it was the highest, had a long lunch at the summit and admired the magnificent views. Back to the Bealach and headed up Beinn Dothaidh no real problems here except it was a bit boggy in places. We made the summit in good time and again admired the views over Rannoch Moor before making our way down to the bealach for more food and a blether. An easy walk out took us to the the Bridge of orchy Hotel and a pint of nectar. A great day out 6 hours walking plus one hour eating and sightseeing.
