I'd previously climbed Ben Cruachan on its own a couple of years ago but ran out of time to do the full horseshoe (abandoned as I'd read the time wrong and thought I'd miss my bus).

As I'd no desire to redo Cruachan I looked up alternative routes and found a good one from near Dalmally that would also allow me to bag Beinn a'Bhuiridh as well

This route gives fine views of neighbouring Munro's Beinn a'Chochuill, Beinn Eunaich and Ben Cruachan and would be ideal for anyone who would struggle doing the full Cruachan horseshoe
