Beinn Oss & Beinn Dubh Craig - starting at Dalrigh.  Winter walk with boggy path on the approach, higher up the going should be drier but likely to be snow covered so ice axes and crampons required.  The ridges are broad but rocky and undulating with crags.  Distance around 18km, time for walk 7-8 hours.

Crainlarich (Cruach Ardrain) - Initially through the forest and then up onto 'Grey Height' and on to the summit. A round trip of approx. 7.5 miles, 4 hours. It would be a shame not to do Beinn Tulaichean also, and this would add 2.8 miles and another 1hr 40min. Remember, the hills are in full winter conditions, ice-axe and crampons required for this trip.

Sun 22nd April
Glen Etive - Stob Dubh, the black peak, is often regarded as Glen Etive’s finest Corbett. With its sharp subsidiary peak An Grianan, its 3km ridge on a clear day provides outstanding views not just of the Glencoe area but north to Ben Nevis and the Ben Alder range and south to Ben Starav. Most of the route is trackless and all scrambling can easily be avoided. The out and back route should take around 6 hours and starts from a small layby just west of the Alltchaorunn bridge on the Glen Etive road at NN 197 513
