Pretty much followed the route described, except at Dothaidh where I went straight up to the south point after getting fed up with the boggy path and wanting to get up onto the ridge. Great views walking along the ridge, really enjoyed it despite the wind. Even went back for another look over Loch Tulla, fabulous.
There was a little bit of snow to avoid or walk over on Dorain but it is going fast, plenty of melt water running down the slopes.

this was the same route as i took last year that my girlfriend had taken me which got me into multi Munro bagging. Spectacular views!!! I'll do them again just to get the other 3 for the Bridge of Orchy circuit.
