Beinn a' Chaisteil and Beinn nam Fuaran
Beinn a' Chaisteil towers impressively with broken crags above Auch, though its ridge gives grassy walking; Beinn nam Fuaran is a more retiring hill but also more rugged underfoot.
Good track in glens. Grassy but pathless on Beinn a' Chaisteil. Steeper, rougher and wetter on Beinn nam Fuaran.
Buses run along the A82 past the start.
