Ben Lui is a graceful peak, considered by many people to be the finest mountain in the Southern Highlands. It offers its best side towards Dalrigh, and approaches from this side can involve a scramble round either rim of its northeastern corrie, but it is more usually climbed from Glen Lochay, a much shorter route.
Altitude: 1130 metres

Other routes and challenges
The route above is direct and offers the easy inclusion of Beinn a' Chleibh, but the longer approach up Glen Cononish from Dalrigh reveals the finest aspect of the mountain - the two peaks towering above Coire Gaothach. A dip on the ridge enclosing the right side can be gained from the corrie and offers a scrambling route to Ben Lui.
Climbing all four Munros of the group offers a long but manageable day, usually done as a traverse from Dalrigh to Glen Lochay.
