Keith Armour, Craig Brackenridge, Barry McGarahan Fantastic winter walk crisp snow and ice visibility all along Rannoch Moor couldn't of Asked for a better day on the hill.ian-e25/02/2018
Walked from Victoria Bridge up Stob a'Choire Odhair on a dry but grey day. Quite warm and windless. Ideal walking weather. Followed that up with an ascent of Stob Ghabhar and then back down via the waterfall. The route up Stob Ghabhar from Coirean Lochain side seemed too steep, loose and crumbling for a safe descent.honey badger17/09/2017
Circuit of Black Mount Munros. From parking on A82 by Loch Ba, track westwards to West Highland Way, then south along WHW until about 1km S of Ba Bridge, then directly up Beinn Toaig, continuing on to Stob a'Choire Odhair, Stob Ghabhar, descent to N/NW on Aonach Mor, turning NE to bealach and then up Clach Leathad and N to Creise, returned 10 1070 spot height and followed ridge down and up to Meall a'Bhuridh, E along ridge, and descended directly down to WHW via Ba Cottage, and along track to A82kdbennett13/08/2017
From Victoria Bridge via Clashgour Hut. A circuit of Stob a'Choire Odhair, Aonach Eagach, Stob Ghabhar, Sron nan Giubhas, Sron a'Ghearrain and Stob a'Bruaich Leith. The lower reaches were a holiday home for marshwiggles after recent rain, but the ridgewalking is magnificent, and the views superlative.Nick Down112/08/2017

Continuation of walk from Stob a'Choire Odhair. Descended west to bealach at Pt. 668m, then steeply up near Couloir Buttress onto Aonach Eagach. The followed fine ridge round to summit. To descend, we retraced our steps for some 450m and down Stob Maol Ridge. Path very steep, eroded and dangerous over Creag an Steallaire near waterfalls. There must be a better and safer line further south. Then crossed Allt Toaig to rejoin our outward route. With JK.marktrengove04/10/2014
