In my quest to climb every Munro individually (and by an alternative route) I set my sights on Beinn Diamh (I'd previously climbed Cruachan on its own a couple of years previously)

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 visit 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
