Coille na Glas Leitire - Leathad Buidhe - Meall a' Ghiubhais - Coille na Glas Leitire. In steady rain.Mark Jackson31/05/2019
From Ruadh-stac Beag. Descended that one down its scree/bouldery NW face. A wet crossing of the river at NG 9721 6241; then followed the Alt na Creige Baine up before contouring round Creag Baine to NG 9706 6356 after which it was just a bit of slog up in wind and rain. Checked out several other tops glimpsed through the cloud, assume all are lower. Descended to NG 9894 6354 where a good track was picked up leading up and over the Highland 5.jonglew10/09/2018
From CP a few miles up from the Visitor centre. Initially got lost in the wood as marker post wasn't on the path leading to the mountains so walked past turn off. Easy Corbett to bag, but the next one (Ruadh-stac Beag) wasn't!Jhimmy07/06/2018

Clockwise circuit using mountain trail from Coille na Glas car park. With Nathan.MorecambeMonkey07/04/2016
From the car park at the S end of Loch Maree with Shaky. Late start. Nature Trails path to high point with cairn & then skirted Loch Allt An Daraich & went more or less due E up steepening slopes to the summit. With deteriorating weather & the day getting on, we abandoned the planned ascent of Ruadh-stac Beag. Back two days later to sort that out though...NotReallyABagger16/09/2015
