With three friends. We took the boat operated by Billy Mackenzie from Arnisdale to Barrisdale. We walked up the track towards Mam Barrisdale and found a campsite. With lighter sacks went up a nice scramble to the summit of Stob a' Chearcail. We continued to the summit of Aonach Sgoilt and Ladhar Bheinn with scrambling from time to time. We passed over the south top. There are two tops close together. Both were visited - the second one looks to be higher. Three of us went out to the Munro Top of Stob a' Choire Odhair. From the summit of Aonach Sgoilte we followed a path down to join the Stob a' Chearcail scramble quite low down. The views were really good - the weather dry and quite warm, even late on.pwbellarby31/05/2008

Epic! Full packs with Shaky & Davy Bell from Kinlochhourn to Barrisdale bothy. Left stuff. Now humid, windless & rain pelting down, headed up Stob a'Chearcaill. Steep bit muddy, slippery & bit scary. Over lumps to Ladhar Bheinn summit. No view. Back to pt 849 & direct line to col & then bothy. Two sleeping bags had appeared next to us & as we dozed off, their owners turned up, one of whom appeared to be Rab C. Nesbitt. Rab snored his head off. Together with sticky humdity & water torture of a gutter dripping water into a puddle meant no sleep. Climax arrived later when someone sloshed into now flooded toilet in a hurry, banged seat down and noises revealed reason for their haste. Ashamed to admit all 3 of us burst out laughing. On plus side, it woke Rab up & stopped the snoring. Left at dawn, still raining & with river getting high, abandoned other 2 Munros, walked out for breakfast in Fort William, a speeding ticket for Davy, the cup final on TV and a night out in Edinburgh.NotReallyABagger28/05/1999
met a guy from Darlington on Ben Sgritheall previous day who said he'd hired a boatman to take him across Loch Hourn to the bay north of Ladhar Bheinn and then pick him up from Barrisdale after a circuit over Luinnhe Bheinn too and asked me if I'd like to join him. I delightedly jumped at the chance, with Jasper the Dalmatian too. Another hot clear day. Surprisingly, quite by chance on coming off Luinnhe Beinn back on the the main path through to Invereye, bumped into Roland and Ann Bowker!!vegibagger19/05/1999
Walk-in to Barrisdale from Kinloch Hourn, dumped gear at the bothy, and set off for Ladhar Bheinn at 3-30pm. This summit was first objective gained by scramble up an airy ridge.Aye Jimmy08/08/1995

Cairngorm Club meet. With John Hetherington. From Barrisdale Bothy we went to Màm Barrisdale (2 men dropped from a helicopter there). We went a short distance down the path on the other side, then ~south and up a stream to the ridge of Creag Dhearg and hence to Meall Buidhe. We continued over the south east top, Druim Leac a Shith, and then via the south east ridge of Luinne Bheinn to the south east top and the main summit. Descended via Bachd Mhic an Tosaich to Màm Barrisdale, where John descended to Barrisdale. I continued to Stob a Chearcail, point 848m, Ladhar Bheinn, and Stob a Choire Odhar before descending to Barrisdale Bothy. Mist on all the tops except Druim Leac a Shith.pwbellarby11/07/1981
