Details for Beinn an Dothaidh

Beinn an Dothaidh is the second peak of a south - north twisting ridge which rises on the western side of Loch Tulla and is bounded by Water of Tulla and Allt Kinglass. It has a steep western flank containing lots of gullies and a fine corrie (Coire Daingean) on its north-eastern side. The summit is a rather flat plateau with three bumps on it with the middle one being it's true summit and arguably the best views are from the western top. Probably the most impressive feature of this hill is north face of the mountain which has a long line of cliffs & below the western top there's a fine gully. Beinn an Dothaidh is best seen from the north looking into Coire Achaladair, at whose head the north face of the mountain has a long line of rather grassy cliffs which can be climbed in winter.

The usual ascent is from the Bridge of Orchy heading under the bridge and through a gate onto open hillside ascending eroded path up the south of Allt Coire an Dothaidh which heads into Coire an Dòthaidh to the low point between two big crags, Creag an Sochach and Creag Coire an Dòthaidh. From here climb southern ridge ideally onto the western top and then onto the summit. Alternatively ascent can made from Achallader Farm where a path leads up the west side of Allt Coire Achallader from here there a couple of possible ways onto Beinn an Dothaidh's summit.

Beinn Dorain is usually climbed on the same outing and is climbed from the pass between the two peaks.
