Parked up at Bridge of Orchy station, went under the railway and onto the path that led to the bealach. The path leads all the way to Beinn Dorain, remembering in bad weather to continue past the large cairn and onto the true summit.

The girls insisted on taking our pic

We then returned to the bealach, where the path continued towards Beinn an Dothaidh, but unfortunately the path becomes quite boggy and navigation may be difficult in bad weather.
