Snow from about 300m, becoming deeper and with icy patches, clear views from the summit of Stob Coire Sgriodain with cloud swirling at times. As we crossed to Chno Dearg the cloud closed in completely. Powder snow for the long gradual descent north, views across the valley. Great day. John M and Gillian, CSSC.Ellie's Hills25/02/2020

Lovely weather. Staying at Tulloch Bunkhouse. Got train to Corrour in the morning and walked back. Managed to cock up a bit and visit Meall Garbh twice.banksey21/11/2014
Other than the long walk in from Loch Ossian SYHA this did not seem much like a munro. Its nice to be back on a hillside with lots of space no ridges, I last walked in Torridon. Ravens for company on this hill they even joined me for lunch. A walk through from Loch Ossian youth hostel taking in 2 munros to Tulloch Station. Train back to Corrour. Saw evidence of Ptarmigan but did not see any birds. Only wildlife I saw 2 x hairy ubit (caterpillar) 2 x ravens pecked pecking at the ground near where I was having lunchLizzieG14/10/2014

3 of 6: From Stob Coire Sgriodain South Top.ChrisR29/04/2012
With RH from Loch Ossian YH in conjunction with Stob Coire Sgriodain. Set off on cycles in cold wind along Loch Ossian to lodge and then left along open glacial valley. Open views til a bend in road where the path set off up the hill. A steady climb up a steepening valley culminating in an ascent of a snow slope having passed over sites of previous avalanche tracks. Kicked steps in spring soft snow to reach shoulder and ascend to summit in drifting mist. We set off to Stob Coire Sgriodain across broken terrain.david.walker4023/04/2012
