Beinn an Dothaidh forms part of the "Great Wall of Rannoch". It is normally climbed along with Beinn Dorain which is connected by a high bealach on the southern ridge. There is also a much lower col that connects north to Beinn Achaladair but this would add a good bit of time onto the walk hence splitting them up into two outings is usually the norm. From the summit of Beinn an Dothaidh the views of Rannoch Moor are nothing short of spectacular. Its from this vantage point that you can really get a sense of how large, bleak and remote this infamous moor is. At ground level Beinn an Dothaidh is easily dismissed in favour of its neighbour Beinn Dorain with its huge elegant sweeping slopes but at Munro height it is Beinn an Dothaidh that will thrill you. It’s the north east facing corrie that makes this hill so appealing. It is mostly hidden from every angle but offers great scrambling opportunities for all.
For most the route starts at Bridge of Orchy train station right at the foot of Beinn an Dothaidh.
