Straightforward route up break in forest from car park at Inverlochlarig to Stob Breac, An Stuchd, Beinn Mheadhonach, Creag na h-Iolaire, Meall Reamhar and Stob a' Choin.sclater07/02/2020
A detour on a drive up from Glasgow to Glen Lyon. In cloud with rain almost all the way. From Inverlochlarig along track to bridge then more or less straight up north ridge. In the conditions of zero visibility not worth visiting other two tops both of which I had done before and time was pressing.dickscroop31/05/2019
Anticlockwise around the horseshoe from Inverlochlarig.davidpettit8418/04/2019
7 top round from inverlochlarig C/W along track then along side of burn to open area, cnoc na nathrach, cruinn bheinn,creag chaorannach, creah na h lolaire, meall reamhar, meall reamhar north top, stob a choin.robertphillips10/11/2018
Think I might have done this with Liz and Muddy when we did Stob a' Choin on a spectacularly foul day. I remember a discussion as to which was the top so we probably did both it and Reamhar but not certain so needed a revisit. Much better day today, great views.IainT03/09/2018
Swings and roundabouts. The last update granted me an armchair Marilyn tick but robbed me of a Simm and Stirling completion. Now rectified, an ascent on a grim morning of low cloud and drizzle; there was no incentive to continue over the CorbettColin Crawford04/08/2018
Bit of a slog up the ridge from the north, but well worth it for the view south.summitter05/11/2017
From Inverlochlarig, taking very steep direct ascent of Stob a'Choin,joining N ridge above the crags and visiting the slightly lower tops as well as Stob a'Choin. Along ridge to Meall Reamhar,Creag na h-Iolaire then descent N along pleasant ridge with slight path and less steep ground. Clouds covering the tops.RobertP19/02/2017
Stroll along ridge to corbett. Company: Martin Stewartiandesbottes16/07/2016
With Ian Soulsby.Dangerous Dave11/04/2015
Solo from Road end. Cut over bridge to old farm, burn ok but tree cover made for hard going. Track and bridge faster if less interesting option. 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.nordicstar11/08/2013
Continue to sCT with Jim Bloomer again lovely spot. Then descend ridge back to bridgeDugswell205/06/2012
