From the car park towards Blairchreich, then the forest track to the tree break directly north of Stob Breac. Up the northern flank to the Stob, then along the ridge southwards taking in each recognised top to An Stuchd. Continued south to Beinn Mheadhonach, then back to take in Cnoc na Nathrac before heading along the burnside gap in the forest to the track through Glen Sgionie back to the start. 3.15 hours round.summitter17/05/2019
Stob Breac, An Stuchd, Beinn Mheadhonach and Cnoc na Nathrach from Inverlochlarig. Short unpleasant section of forest to reach easy open ground then track along Glen Sgionie. Almost continuous rain.RobertP26/08/2018
From Inverlochlarig via the zigzags and the vestigial path on the NE (near) side of the Allt a'Choire Bhan, which requires some grassy ledgework where the sidewalls close in around a waterfall. Thence to the ridge, circling North to take in the North Tp, Stob Bhreac itself, the South Top, Far South Top, An Stuchd, Beinn Mheadonach after a steady descent, and the pleasant viewpoint of Cnoc na Nathrach, with its embedded quartz summit. I made the mistake of crossing the dilapidated deer fence and floundering in the mud and serried trees of the Darien Gap between there and the start of the Glen Sgoinie track.Nick Down129/04/2018
SMC route from car park at end of public road past Ardcarnaig. Estate roads & tracks to forest track contouring around hill & up fire break beside burn & waterfall from NE. 4 hours 16rogreeves18/04/2017
Started from small parking area about a mile along the track beyond Loch Voil hostel. Track then a reasonable combination of fire breaks up to Stob Breac, nicely south along the ridge to An Stuchd across to Taobh na Coille seeing a badger on the way at about 1.00pm in the open then north to Beinn Stacach. In descent missed best line I think due to misplacing my compass, so a bit of a struggle through the trees.dickscroop05/11/2016
Used the zig zag track then straight up through the big gap in the forestry which was not bad really. Came down by burn to the east, which had some interesting steep sections beside falls within the forest. Care might be needed in snow/dark. All easy today though.jenx07/09/2016
From CP at road end. Track towards Blaircreich farm then grassy track off up to GR 446178 where easily possible to climb steep grassy slopes to a rickety deer fence. Then steep rising ramp left to right and then back left to gain ridge. Undulates until summit gained. Descended to east on obvious gully line then wide ride in forest to track. Some care on a steep section over a waterfall. Used track to return to CP in 3hrs.nordicstar07/09/2016
Solo. From car park at the start of the track to Inverlochlarig. Walked along road and track towards Blaircreich. Shortly before Blaircreich took forest track that goes in a wide zig zag up through the forest. At a junction took the track that goes round the northern side of Stob Breac. When I came to Allt a' Choire Bhàin I went up the true left side of the burn. This is the route recommended in ‘The Grahams & the Donalds’ published by Scottish Mountaineering Trust in 2015. Once out of the forest continued upwards to reach summit of Stob Breac. No deer fences to climb over this way. Continued south to Graham top and Cnoc na Nathrach before returning through the forest.pwbellarby04/08/2016
Battered by wind and rain, glanced around would have been a pleasant view. Could see a bit, did not hang around just descended straight off peak to camp. Company: Martin Stewartiandesbottes16/07/2016
With GHC in lovely sunshine and calm conditions. Up from the east via the stream and down the west after completing the long north/south ridge.Play2End16/08/2015
A pretty direct line of attack from Glen Voil road-end. Slightly less direct descent for knee-saving purposes. (

From car park. Forest provides puzzle as to the best fire break and the hill itself is not dull when you have steep grassy slopes with fresh snow to contend with, Rob HW.Martin R02/03/2014
up from end of public road tracks then open hillside to summit hard packed snow easy walking.robertphillips16/02/2014
Solo from Road end to Corbett Stob a'Choin. Steep up through wet grass to gain North ridge. Both tops to ensure summit. Onto sub Hump and other tops to Graham Stob Breac ridge. Mist and rain after the CTs. Back over Stob Breac Graham and tops, steep down N slope to finish.nordicstar11/08/2013

Parked at end of road beyond Loch Voil. On estate access road, over river to a forest road over stile and deer fence on zig zag to high level overlooking start point. Very steeply up at gap in plantings to upper deer fence. Over bearing left to reach grassy ridge and over 3 or 4 false summits to top at 12.00.arranc18/04/2003
