From Loch Ossian YHA, a very wet day, on the landrover track then along the Abhainn Rath to Staonaig on the shitty path and up the steep and rough but easy S ridge. Staonaig stepping stones under about 4 feet of water and no chance of more hills, so took the much easier, smoother descent N to the Allt na Lairige, a better path, shorter route and with the lovely little stone-paved gorge path towards the end. A very fine hill; rain stopped whilst on the hill to give superb views but started again on the way back.Gill17/08/2019

Solo trip from Corrour station. Up from the Abhainn Rath side, down to the NW avoiding all crags. Someone seems to have pilled the plug out of Loch Treig.Invicta1422/06/2018
1 of 4: From Corrour Station.ChrisR25/08/2016
See Leum Uilleim. In the wet conditions did not fancy the very steep south side so contoured round east side to easier ground. A nice summit, especially if the weather had been better. Took shelter from the wind and rain for lunch in the ruined lodge by the bridge. Two guys I had met the night before at Loch Chiarain bothy were already there and had a fire going which was a bonus. Obviously used as a bothy, a bit of a mess but plenty of wood for a fire.dickscroop05/06/2015
