En route from Ben Vorlich to Stuc a Chroin on a snowy day.Denise 06/03/2024
Straight up the motorway from Ardvorlich to the summit trig, down to the Beallach & scramble up Stuc a Chroin & it's N top. Descent NW, NE then N to skirt W side of Ben Vorlich on good paths. Then picked up smaller path & ATV track to summit of Creagan nan Gabhar. Great views of Stuc scramble from here. Path continues to Ben Our & on over Sron Mhor. Path disappeared here and we descended E, zigzagging to avoid bracken to meet main motorway just above dog gate. According to a very pleasant local, 14000 people climb these munros every year!Lynnebe05/07/2023

Low cloud and heavy rain saw me driving home but cleared enough to encourage me to turn around and do these 2 'easy' Munros. Took my ice axe for the thin covering of overnight snow on the tops - a useful looking weapon according to fishermen near the start, Gale force SW winds on summit ridge -nasty - kicking steps up snow to scramble on over north top to add Stuc a'Chroin then down into N corrie to escape wind. car at 6.30pm -fishermen still there -had caught nothing.Chris Pearson23/05/1986
