MUNRO CENTRAL

Beinn Dorain and Beinn an Dothaidh from Bridge of Orchy

8.4 miles, 1206 metres of ascent
Estimated time: 4h45m
This is a comfortable days walk that takes in two fairly high Munros. Both are prominent from the A82 and easily accessible from Bridge of Orchy. There is a public carpark in Bridge of Orchy, but you may be able to find somewhere slightly closer to park.
You need to head out of Bridge of Orchy along the little track that passes under the railway line, immediately there is a path that follows Allt Coire an Dothaidh up, follow this path all the way up to the col between our two mountains at 325398. We will head up to Beinn Dorain first, so head slightly off South to make your way to the summit (2h30m). You will come across a subsidiary top first, the high-point is slightly further South and is slightly higher.
Return back to the col, and this time head North up to Beinn an Dothaidh (3h45m). There are three tops to Beinn an Dothaidh, you will probably come out on the Western top at exactly 1000m, the central top is slightly higher at 1004, while the Southern-most top is 993m. There isn't much between them so make sure you get the right one!
Return again back to the col before heading back down alongside Allt Coire an Dothaidh the way you came up to Bridge of Orchy.
