On this route Ben Lui's north-eastern ridge is the highlite and Ben Lui dominates the group of hills. The hills are linked via ridge that winds and varies in character from the broad grassy side of Beinn a' Chleibh to the rocky sothern flank of Ben Oss and the stony back of Beinn Dubhchraig.

It's a long tough route and a demanding day out but offers an excellent day on the hills that is full of interest and bags four good munros.
