Beinn Dubhchraig sits at 978m which is considerably less than its surrounding neighbours however it makes up for this in the bulk of the hill. Not to be impolite but it’s a bit of a fatty!
Beinn Dubhchraig is the most eastern of the Tyndrum Hills and a very prominent sight from the A82 just south of Tyndrum. From this angle the sheer bulk of the hill hides its higher neighbours of Ben Oss and Ben Lui. Beinn Dubhchraig is most often climbed in conjunction with Ben Oss as they are attached via a large bealach that skirts round Loch Oss with fantastic views of the lochan itself. The south western face of Beinn Dubhchraig which gives the hill its name is a formidable sight and offers fantastic scrambling opportunities if you would like more than just a walk !
Beinn Dubhchraig is often left behind in favour of its more famous neighbours but this is definitely a mistake and a visit to its fine summit ridge is a must.
Parking is available at Dalrigh off the A82 or Tyndrum is on the Mallaig and Oban to Glasgow train route. From the station it’s around a 15 minute walk to Dalrigh.
