Three Arch Bridge - Loch an t-Siob' - Beinn Shiantaidh - Beinn an Oir - Beinn a' Chaolais - Loch an t-Siob' - Three Arch Bridge. Perfect sunny day. Boggy below 200m. Just over 6 hours.davidpettit8408/11/2019

Superb Paps hill walk. Initially with Bolton & CJM, then with CJM to Beinn Shiantaidh, Beinn an Oir & Beinn a'Chaolais. Fine weather - a superb walk over fantastic quartzite hills.ger13/09/2019

Round of Corrabheinn, Shiantaidh and Oir from start of Evans path. It looks forbidding from all sides, but from Corrabheinn col, I followed an effective path up and around to the south face, then ascended steeply on short heather, only encountering scree near the top. Down the west face, scree at first onto a shoulder, from where a rough path leads safely down through the steep crags.Topographer5711/06/2019
With MVW from Bridge after cycle from Craighouse, then onto NE ridge Beinn Shiantaidh, very laborious scree to summit. then onto Beinn an Oir which was pleasant in comparison. Clear warm day with cool wind. Return via lock and same route back to bikes.Frank09/04/2019
7.35 ferry from Islay. Followed the standard walkhighlands Paps of Jura route. 7 hours 40 minutes, plenty of time for the ferry back. Weather played ball, dry, mild, almost calm, cloud just touching the tops occasionally.Owen B20/08/2018

Zero visibility above 500m. Tough.Arbie30/06/2017
6th hill of 7 today on a circular route from the Three -arched bridge outside Knockrome, climbing Cnuic Charrach, Bheinn Mhearsmail South top, Bheinn Mhearsmail, Beinn Chaolais and Beinn an Oir, descending North via a combination of scree, bilberry/heather and boulderfields. I didnt spot any obvious path up so worked my way up till a path emerged. Great summit. Tricky descent but found a path to profile round snd descend to the lochs just South of Corra Bheinn, my final hill of the day.Dazingdale07/05/2017

With Jenx, used Evans Path (poor and wet, indistinct across moor) to gain slopes of Corra Bheinn. Down the paps path and skirted lochans to path heading up flank of Spionlaidh. Back same way and the 'path' back to start. Stunning fay with 50+ mile views.nordicstar18/08/2015
