Great walk, little scramble to the top but worth the views.Sonja8920/06/2020

The path up to Ben Vorlich was quite busy but a lot less people made the journey to Stuc a' Chroin. Very windy up to Ben Vorlich but then it died off. The scramble up to Stuc a' Chroin wasn't that bad and there was only one bit that involved stretching your arm out to get a fingerhold. The scree path back down was a bit steep but fine. 6.5 hours in total.tsharp15/09/2019

Solo climb. Good path to start but rougher as you get higher which made the descent tougher than expected as there were a lot of loose rocks. Still a fun climb.Thomas McIlvaney21/07/2019
