About three miles heading north from Tyndrum and just under the unmistakable Ben Dorain, it is possible to leave the main path and follow another route eastwards that will lead into Auch Gleann ( glen ) and along the river Allt Kinglass.
Here you will pass under the main Fort William-Glasgow railway bridge and into the glen with Ben Dorain now seen from the south east on your right and Beinn a Chaisteil on your left. A pleasant walk of around five miles can be had through the valley with Beinn a Chuirn and Beinn Mhanach being the main features
