Ben Oss & Beinn Dubhchraig are a couple of Ben Lui's (Beinn Laoigh) satellites situated on the south of Tyndrum & west of Crainlarich and together form the eastern extension of the range.

Start from Strath Fillan on the north west by a path up Coille Coire Chuilc & Allt Coire Dubhchraig then up steep grassy slopes to reach the summit point. From here head around down to Bealach between Ben Oss and Ben Dubhchraig where you can climb Ben Oss's north eastern ridge. To descend return back to Bealach between Ben Oss and Ben Dubhchraig where you have to climb again onto the north end of Beinn Dubhchraig by a tiny lochan. From here head down grassy slopes back down via Allt Coire Dubhchraig & Coille Coire Chuilc back to the start.

On a clear day there will be good views on the south down Loch Lomond right down to Ben Lomond, on the south west the Crainlarich Hills and on the south west the most isolated munro in the southern highlands Beinne Bhuidhe.
