Ben Oss and Beinn Dubhchraig from Dalrigh
Some guidebooks describe the route from Dalrigh to Dubhchraig as involving a boggy path and a dilapidated bridge over the Allt Gleann Auchreaoch. Thankfully these reports are out of date. Both path and bridge have been reconstructed and provide quite pleasant going.

Bridge over the Allt Gleann Auchreaoch

Renovated path.
The gaiters will be needed farther along the path beside the Allt Choire Dubhchraig though. Apart from the odd boggy patch, walking along this path is an enjoyable experience as the Allt tumbles down a series of terraces, small waterfalls and through several deep pools. I followed the route from Dalrigh as described on the Walkhighlands website and in “The Munros – a Walkhighlands guide” by Helen & Paul Webster. This involves some gentle scrambling when moving between Beinn Dubhchraig and Bealach Buidhe. This should not be a problem in summer conditions but could be problematic in winter conditions if not properly equipped.
