With a friend. Departed from the road near Aberarder, initially along the footpath going towards Coire Ardair. Then we went up slopes of Na Chapanan to reach the summit of Carn Liath. We went along to Meall an-t-Snaim, Sròn Coire a Chriochairein, East top and main summit of Stob Poite Coire Ardair (1051m, 1053m). We continued to Creag Meagaidh, Beinn a Chaorainn and Beinn Teallach. Weather excellent. A good, fast trip.pwbellarby11/06/1995
