08:10 Start from car park at Dalrigh 3m north of Crianlarich on A82. Followed path down to Bridge over River Fillan. Once over took path off to right which runs alongside the railway line. Once across railway headed straight on for a short distance until reached a small cairn marking path down to Allt Gleann Auchreoch.(Thanks to all who contributed)

Followed this path down to burn and crossed a very dodgy bridge made up of 2 lenghts of railway track each tilted over at an odd angle, with 4 foot lengths of timber across them, some broken, missing or rotted away. Don't know if it will last too much longer.

Followed a very wet and boggy path up through the Coille Coire Chuilc forest, remnant of ancient Caledon pine woods. Kept Allt Gleann Auchreoch on left, picking up Allt Coire Dubhchraig and out onto open moorland.

10:10 Up onto north ridge and an easy pull to the top of Beinn Dubhchraig. 10:30.

Good views of Loch Lomond and across to Beinn Laoigh(Ben Lui).

10:40 started down across Bealach Buidhe, skirting base of adjacent top then across Coire Garbh and east face of Ben Oss to south ridge and up this way to summit. 11:50.

Good views of Crianlarich hills, nice and clear on top with just some wispy clouds blowing through below and high above.

12:05 Started back down by heading north across top and down over adjacent top to Bealach Buidhe. Decided to go down via Coire Buidhe, only a short steep section at start and then steep grassy slopes which gradually levelled out as i got down towards River Cononish. Followed river back to Cononish Farm and followed track back to car park. 14:25.

Nice dry, sunny day with intermittent cloud. Breezy on top but clear of cloud and still dry. :D

Sounds like you got a similar days weather to myself on Wednesday. I done Ben Lui and Beinn A Cheilbh from Dalrigh and it was the best day out on the hills I've had in ages.

Ben Oss and Ben Dubhchraig are definitely on my soon-to-do list.

Nice report, I see you and Bob Sacamano did separate hills from the same starting point. Wonder if it's possible to do all four in one trip?

Yes it would be possible. I considered it on the day but decided against it. I think it might have been a bit too much for me.
