Decision time here, is it a walk thru or do I walk back to Loch Ossian SYHA. Called National Railway information line, and after some spelling out of strange Scottish names found the train would be at Tulloch at 1808hrs. Walk thru it is so after here its straight on for Chno Dearg. 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

From FersitBLACKHILL09/08/1993
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
