Classic round of 3 from Aberarder.quadbarrel01/12/2019
Climbed from Aberarder car park to do the Creag Meagaidh circuit, with Carn Laith first, Stob Poite Coire Ardair then Creag Meagaidh, retuning down the Coire Ardair path from The Window. Once above Na Cnapanan, very thick mist pretty much throughout with very strong winds. Meet Richard on the summit of Carn Laith, thankfully we teamed up to do the other two in the circuit, as without his GPS I would have turned back to the car park. 07:10 hrs all in.chillyman805/10/2019

From Aberarder, followed path past the farmhouse, through the Coill' a'Choire woods then up slopes to E, eventually finding a track near a line of old iron fence posts that led onto the ridge a short way NW of Na Cnapanan, then continued on to summit of Carn Liath. Turned W and followed line of ridge all the way along to Stob Poite Coire Ardair, decent to 'Window', then up on to plateau E of Carn Meagaidh and across this to the summit, returning E and SE to Puist Coire Ardair and along E ridge to Sron a' Choire, descending along Allt Bealach a' Choire to ATV track and bridge across river near Aberarderkdbennett08/10/2017
