From falls, clockwise circle, Warm, good views.iangalbraith07/08/1994
With two friends. We left the main road at NN035295 and headed uphill to the right of Allt Cruiniche, then going roughly eastwards to meet the SW ridge of Stob Dearg. Ascended the ridge to reach the summit of Stob Dearg. Followed the main ridge to Ben Cruachan, Drochaid Ghlas, Stob Diamh, continuing to Sron an Isean. We thought of descending the easterly ridge from here, but instead continued to Beinn a Chochuill and Beinn Eunaich, taking the opportunity to add scrambling bits. Descended via the south ridge to Castles Farm. The day was very misty initially, but clear conditions on the somewhat lower summits at the end of the day. A little rain and very windy at times.pwbellarby18/09/1993

From Ben Cruachan, a classic ridge walk on a rather narrow ridge. This was delightful, the cloud blowing on and off, but we paid with a very rough, bouldery descent to Bridge of Awe. With Steve Barcpwheeler16/09/1977
Ascended on a long distance walk with the first leg being from Taynuilt to Dalmally. Weather deteriorated as the summit was reached. Later ascent in 1997.JohnW30/05/1976
