Set out from Tyndrum northwards following the West Highland Way. I then picked away up the broad shoulder of Beinn Odhair from a point where the WHW starts to lose height. There's no real path that I could find, but its easy enough ground and visibility below 1000m on the day was excellent. My route ultimately took me right past the mine workings. Those I saw weren't particularly deep but I still wouldn't want to drop into them picking my way down off the top.
There were good views across to other Corbetts in the group from the summit (but not for me today!)
There was an obvious track up from Tyndrum that runs up quite close to the river and I'd decided to pick this up on the way down in order to walk a circular route of sorts. In the event it was easy enough to find and get down to from above and made a nice finish to the walk.
