Part of circular routeOh no I forgot...27/08/2019
Debs & Tali. From Ardlui. Parked opposite station underpass although sign in hotel says you can park in the compound/yard across the road. Route as per Pocket Mountains, Southern Highlands. Last bit of the descent fiddly.Mountain Goat23/06/2019
Up the Little Hills from Stuckendroin for the David Batty Memorial walk. Descended over the Munro with members of the Munro Society.NormanW22/06/2019
Trad route from Inveruglas, via Loch Sloy and the Lag Dubh, including N and S tops and both Little Hills. NOTE - the Inveruglas car park is now Pay and Display (£4 someone said). Cars were parked all about (even blocking the hydro-road gate) to avoid paying, as this is an exploitative situation, with little other legitimate options for parking. I parked, legitimately, about 1km S and walked safely up the outside of the Armco - 5 minutes.Isbjorn 3rd Round22/06/2019
From Ardlui on ascent of Ben Vorlich and return over the Little Hills ridge.knarf11/06/2019
Standard route out and back from Inveruglas via Loch Sloy up Lag Dubh. A lovely day with one snow shower and a light dusting of snow and fierce wind at the summit. Did the north top then returned the same way. An outstanding viewpoint and now one of my favourite mountains.Chris Mac26/10/2018

Short solo break in Ardlui. 4.30pm drop off so flew up Ben Vorlich taking in Stob nan C. Bhacain and Little Hills in 4hrs. Path not distinct all the way up (blunder up from dam). There are problems getting off the NE end of Stuc na Nughinn. Interesting Munro though.Mark Jackson17/07/2013
Solo ascent with Jennie, Holly and Abbie. From Inveruglas via Loch Sloy tourist path. Fresh wind. A little low cloud but quite sunny on top. Almost no snow now. 4 1/2 hours but would have been 4 if I had found the path from the outset.alexmaclennan20/04/2013

Cairngorm Club bus meet. I left the bus at Ardlui and walked on path past Garristuck and up towards Stob an Fhithick. Hence over Stob nan Coinnich Bhacain to 931m top of Ben Vorlich, and the main summit. I was alone so far. After waiting on the summit I met up with another club member. Together we went to trig point and went over Little Hills, down ridge to NE, and then to burn, following paths not shown on my map to near Garristuck, and thence Ardlui.
