Ben Lui Traverse

A  traverse of the 4 Munros of the Ben Lui group (Beinn Dubhcraig, Ben Oss, Ben Lui and Beinn a Chleibh).  A fine traverse which should provide a long but memorable days walking amongst spectacular scenery.  Although there are no technical difficulties this is a strenuous walk with a considerable amount of ascent/descent so a good level of fitness is required.

The traverse will be completed east to west ,starting at at Dalrigh near Tyndrum and finishing in Glen Lochy.  All types of terrain will be encountered -the descent to Glen Lochy is notoriously boggy and requires a river crossing at the end of the day.  This may lead to a variation in route choice if there is prolonged rainfall prior to the walk date.

Walk duration - 8 hours. No technical difficulty but a good level of fitness required. Potentially hazardous river crossing at end of walk.

For Medium, Hard and Extra Hard walks we ask walkers to make sure they have full hillwalking gear, by which we mean definitely the following: Boots, warm clothing, warm/quick drying trousers (not denim jeans), waterproof jacket and over trousers, rucsac, hat, gloves, spare fleece, packed lunch, spare food and drink, small personal first aid kit including any medications, mobile phone, headtorch, and bivvy bag if you have one, and possibly also these other items, depending on personal preference: Gaiters, rucsac cover, walking poles, spare socks, map, compass, GPS, lipsalve, camera.

1. Risk.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.

2. Children.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.

3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
