Beinn nan Oighreag, Glen Lochay
Ranking amongst the highest of the Corbetts, Beinn nan Oighreag was briefly thought to top 3000 feet. The approach given here from Glen Lochay is perhaps the most attractive, following an old path to the shielings of the Allt Dhuin Croisg.
Boggy old path for approach, then burn crossing and pathless grassy / heathery hillside.
No public transport to the start.
Start of tarmac track branching from Glen Lochay minor road at NN539352.
