Sunny, windy and good views. Both tops, in case, and sure enough...iangalbraith22/05/1994
After climbing up Sròn na Gàrbh-bheinne, Stob Coire Sgriodain and its subsidiary top with two companions I continued alone to Meall Garbh (977m two cairns), a minor top to the north* and then Chno Dearg. I descended NW, first running down a considerable snow field. Good view of snow covered peaks Stob a’ Choire Mheadhoin, Mamores, Buachaille Etive Mòr etc. *Subsequently I realised that the minor top was where the summit of Meall Garbh was located according to the 1974 edition of Munro’s Tables.pwbellarby04/04/1993
