Started in Glen Nevis and I walked up Stob Ban and Mullach nan Coirean. Nice walk up to Stob Ban, bit of scree coming down and then a very nice straightforward walk for the rest of the way. Great views and weather except for a few small snow slurries. Particularly good views of Ben Nevis and the West Highland Way.tsharp05/05/2019

CUHWC Roy Bridge trip. 6 western Mamores in a long day.AGWilliamson21/09/2015
Family group: Hyslops, and 3 Kopf-Ps plus me from lower falls. Changeable but cracking views, trade route but always interesting. My favourite Mamore.niallp08/07/2015
The weather was supposed to be terrible today, with heavy rain/snow and high winds, so we decided to go for a walk in the Mamores instead of heading up to Ben Nevis. We did the westernmost part of the Ring of Steall, heading up An Gearanach and west to Stob Ban. A nice ridge walk, in what turned out to be pretty good weather.pwithnall24/03/2015
