Beinn Dorain

West Highland Way trail path north to Beinn Dorain mountain, Grampians. Winter. Between Tyndrum and Bridge of Orchy, Scotland

Just north of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, Beinn Dorain is very easily reached from Glasgow

The striking Beinn Dorain is easily spotted from the A82. Heading north form Tyndrum, you can’t miss the cone-shaped mountain on your right.

You can easily walk it with the neighbouring Munro, Beinn an Dothaidh. Doing so reveals fine views over Rannoch Moor and on to Glencoe’s many peaks. This makes for a roughly nine-mile round trip.

The starting point for the two-Munro hike is Bridge of Orchy. It boasts a train station on the Glasgow to Fort William line.

The difference between the arrival of the first train from Glasgow (10:45am) and the departure of the final train from Bridge of Orchy (6:58pm) is 8 hours.

This may or may not be enough time for walkers to complete the hike, so camping may be necessary.
