Crossing over the railway bridge and through the gate you will come across a path which will eventually lead you to a foreststry road, folow this and you are heading towards the young conifers that have been recently planted below grey heights, here you have to walk through the planted trees It was wet underneath but not as bad as I had thought but I spoke to people who had came up from the car park about a mile before where we parked and they said it was awful. Once we had reached grey height we could see Ben More to our left with cloud enveloping it like a huge hand and then it just as quickly come into view As you can see from the video there was a bank of cloud from Beinn Tulaichean southwards all day which made the day more enjoyable. We really enjoyed these two mountains and Chruach can be pretty steep in places but you get reprieves every now and then (not like its neighbour Ben More) a great walk with good company and terrific views and awesome clouds

Yep nice video. Love the volcanic Ben More and the fantastic cloud formations. Nice soundtrack

It was very simple and very scenic - and no fences at all!
I wonder if the Crianlarich approach could be added to the WH routes, because Cruach Ardrain is such an obvious target for anyone staying in the Crianlarich area.
WH normally has just one route per hill, but it shows two for Ben Venue...
