A ridge walk from Aberarder. Up the path/stream ascending Na Cnapanan to Carn Liath, west to Meall an-t Snaim and Stob Coire a'Chriochairein, the east over A'Bhuideannach to Stob Coire Dubh. Below freezing on the ridge with swirling mists and stags roaring, especially the Glenshirra Forest. Trees in the Creag Meagaidh reserve looking beautiful, with Autumn pointillist leaves.Nick Down113/10/2019
Climbed from Aberarder car park to do the Creag Meagaidh circuit, with Carn Laith first, Stob Poite Coire Ardair then Creag Meagaidh, retuning down the Coire Ardair path from The Window. Once above Na Cnapanan, very thick mist pretty much throughout with very strong winds. Meet Richard on the summit of Carn Laith, thankfully we teamed up to do the other two in the circuit, as without his GPS I would have turned back to the car park. 07:10 hrs all in.chillyman805/10/2019
