A circuit of BV's tops from Ardlui: Stob nan Coinnich Bhacain via the steepish grassy gully on the south - BV North Top - BV - BV South Top - an improvised traverse, helped by a deer track half the way to West Little Hill - East Little Hill - a descent ending in sustained wading through waist high grasses and bracken above Stuckendroin.Nick Down109/09/2017

Short day squeezed between forecast morning and late afternoon rain and wind that did not fully materialise. very wet underfoot with snow thawing rapidly, water everywhere. Made a poor choice of line over crags approaching summit which caused me some minor problems but straightforward if you take care to take the right and fairly obvious line. Nice top for views down into loch etc. Lower doiwn a range of options in the form of ATV tracks though all boggy.dickscroop01/04/2016
Short solo break in Ardlui. 4.30pm drop off so flew up Ben Vorlich taking in Stob nan C. Bhacain and Little Hills in 4hrs. Path not distinct all the way up (blunder up from dam). There are problems getting off the NE end of Stuc na Nughinn. Interesting Munro though.Mark Jackson17/07/2013

On way down, just about enjoying it now! Top on Little annoying hills! With Richard Armour, tiring hill in good weather.Dugswell208/10/1993
Cairngorm Club bus meet. I left the bus at Ardlui and walked on path past Garristuck and up towards Stob an Fhithick. Hence over Stob nan Coinnich Bhacain to 931m top of Ben Vorlich, and the main summit. I was alone so far. After waiting on the summit I met up with another club member. Together we went to trig point and went over Little Hills, down ridge to NE, and then to burn, following paths not shown on my map to near Garristuck, and thence Ardlui. Weather good.pwbellarby04/10/1992
