Thanks, it'll be an area I'll return to many a time :thumbup:

We met an Englishman on our walk-out to Dalwhinie who was heading to Culra. He mentioned that he had done Beinn Eibhinn and Aonach Beag from the Corrour side in a previous outing, so it's probably quite common to tackle these two from the west.

I think the 3hr walk-in and out between Culra and Dalwhinnie puts many off an eastern approach!


Thanks for the info. I would probably take the bike and cycle up to the lodge but I'll probably have to leave those for next year.
