Colin's Munros


The Grey Corries: Stob Choire Claurigh etc. with Stob Ban, map 392
30th July 2018

Route: 1885m=6180' ascent; 15 miles; 10hrs

Evaluation: 5* ridge.

Access: From Spean Bridge, drive to Cour Bridge, then take road south passed Coire Choille Farm for about 1 mile to where there is parking. There are two parking areas: the first at the end of the forest track NN25297937 and the second at the end of the tramway NN25567886.
Route: This is a great walk with spectacular views and easy terrain over most of its length. It includes all the related Munro tops, but omits the two western-most tops of Sgurr Choinnich Mor and Sgurr Choinnich Beag which can be tackled from Glen Nevis as here.
