Details for Ben Oss

Ben Oss is one of Ben Lui's (Beinn Laoigh) satellites situated on the south of Tyndrum & west of Crainlarich and together with Beinn Dubhchraig form the eastern extension of the range. Together they form curved ridge around Loch Oss which is a body of water measuring roughly 500 by 300 metres which lies to the south. Ben Oss is best seen from Loch Lomond around Ardlui where it appears as quite a pointed peak.

Ben Oss has a very craggy northern face, falling away steeply to the Cononish valley and barring any direct approach from this direction. It has two main ridges which connect to the adjacent Munros of Ben Lui and Beinn Dubhchraig and walkers usually arrive at the mountains summit along either of these. The summit of the mountain is flattish and the medium size cairn stands on an area of large slabby rocks interspersed with grass. The summit has a prominence of 342 metres and gives a fine vista of the southern highlands, it is a good place to admire the craggy eastern face of neighbouring Ben Lui.

Usual access is from Beinn Dubhchraig's western ridge, which is accessed via Dalrigh in Strath Fillan where it's possible to park just off the A82 Road. Alternatively, the hill can be climbed from Glen Falloch on the south east via Fionn Ghleann upto Loch Oss where an ascent can be made.
