From parking S of Coirriechoille, out of forest and immediately along forest edge, a bit boggy, then straight up Stob Coire Gaibhre. On to Stob Choire Claurigh N Top, out and back to Stob Coire na Ceannain. Followed ridge to Stob Choire Claurigh, Stob a Choire Leith, Stob Coire Cath na Sine, Caisteal, Stob Coire an Laoigh, Stob Coire Easain, Sgurr Choinnich Mor and Sgurr Coinnich Beag. Back over SCM and SCE. Lovely grass to Beinn na Sochaich. Initially followed good path to about 700m then cut W below crags but above Coire nan Each. I think above crags would have been better route. Steep but grassy and ok to walk. To track just S of An Guirea. Easy climb to summit, Off due E back to good track. Excellent, if not a bit constructed, signposted track back to start. 28km, 1932m ascent 9:30 total and rushing to get across Spean Bridge before 8pm closure! Fabulous views all day.Lynnebe19/06/2024

After staying at Tomacharich. Alone. From the road end near Corriechoille. I went along track and up towards Coire na Ceannain. Then I went up the N ridge to Stob Coire na Ceannain, along the ridge to the main top of Stob Choire Claurigh, the N top, and Stob Coire Gaibhre. Back to Corriechoille. There was a hard frost making the snow hard. It was a very good ridge. Some mist.pwbellarby02/01/1985

En route from Stob Choire Claurigh to Stob Coire na Ceannain. (S)gerrybowes24/10/1983
Cairngorm Club meet. With three fellow members. From Corriechoille over moor and through woods. Then turned right and went up the hillside to Stob Coire Gaibhre followed by Stob Choire Claurigh (N Top), South Top, Stob a Choire Leith, Stob Coire Cath na Sine, Caisteall, Stob Coire an Laoigh, Beinn na Socaich, Stob Corrie Easain, Sgurr Chòinnich Mór. Two us included Sgurr Chòinnich Beag to arrive at the car park at the top of Glen Nevis. Rain, mist and high wind made it very trying on the approach to Stob Coire Claurigh. Thereafter there was a gradual improvement. It was clear from Stob Coire an Laoigh. The waterfalls in Glen Nevis were superb.pwbellarby26/09/1981
