This is a great walk if you can include Beinn Dorain as well. It adds about 350m to the ascent.
I didn't have time for it on this occasion. Otherwise, start at Achallader farm instead.
There is no need to cross to the NW side of the Water of Tulla. There is a path on the SE side and a bridge over the railway at NN34934546.
The inclusion of Beinn Mhanach is possible.
In cloud the descent off Beinn a Chreachain towards Meall Buidhe can be problematic as there is no clear ridge shape to follow.
