Parked on the A82 at Darrydaroch and kited up in the fine rain. Waterproofs on from the beginning. Walked along the West Highland Way a wee bit . At the junction of the tracks cut off across the fields heading for the gate at the corner of the field. From here it is just a matter of following the Allt a' Chuilinn burn up stream till you get a safe bit to cross. This burn is in quite a deep gorge for a bit but it does emerge where a safer crossing point can be found. Cross the burn and continue upstream and pick your line heading for the beallach on the ridge. Once on the bealach you pick up a well defined path that takes you to the summit of Beinn Chabhair. A quick coffee and off down the steep NE side heading for the bealach at the 619 spot height. Again pick your line and head ENE for the Bealach Buidhe. Once on the bealach pick up the path and follow this steeply uphill to the summit of Beinn a' Chroin. No photo's due to the clag so about turn and follow my route back to Bealach Buidhe. Continue to follow the well defined path up the steep SE side of An Caisteal to arrive at the summit. Another quick coffee and headed initially SW then swinging NW to pick up the ridge leading to Stob Glass. Over Stob Glass and down W into the valley to pick up the route followed on the way in. Rain stopped after coming off of An Caisteal and even managed to get the waterproofs off for the last bit of the walk.
