Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg

We did this walk in May 2005 starting from Fersit. After crossing the railway and going past the farm along the land rover track we turned off south south east onto onto the rough and rather boggy moorland. The picture is looking back to Fersit.

There is a vague track in places but for the most part we just found the easiest way up crossing streams as necessary.

The picture above shows Sron na Garbh-bheinne, which  marks the beginning of the ridge to Stob Coire Sgriodain

The views north eastwards open up to show Loch Lagan in the distance.

Here we're climbing up the side of Sron na Garbh-bheinne with Beinn Teallach and Beinn a'Chaorainn across the River Spean.

Climbing beneath the crags of  Sron na Garbh-bheinne and the boggy ground has been left behind.

Once up on the ridge the views open up. Here is Loch Trieg far below.

The summit.

The ground drops steeply from the summit down to the shores of Loch Treig.

The route continues above Coire an Lochain over numerous knolls and then drops down to about 900m as can be seen in the next photo.

The top of Meall Garbh can be seen to the right with Chno Dearg on the right.

The southern end of Loch Treig is visible again

Lochan Coire an Lochain is seen from just before the climb to Chno Dearg starts.

Easy walking leads up to the summit of Chno Dearg at 1046m.

We returned down the grassy, and sometimes boggy, slopes towards Fersit, joining a land rover track by the Allt Chaorach Beag.
