the walk back through the glen


we started this walk the night before by parking the first car at the car park at the end of glen nevis.
after camping the night at bunroy campsite (very cold) we drove to the small car park near coire choille farm,from here there is a good track all the way to the bothy,
look out for the strange statue near the car park STRANGE !!!
behind the bothy there is a path that follows the stream all the way up to the coire claurigh (very very boggy)from here the path continues up to the base of stob ban and then onto the summit.
after descending stob ban there is a path north straight to the top of stob choire claurigh,a steep but quick climb.
from here there is a fantastic ridge walk across the other two munros,there is plenty of exposure but straight forward.
from stob coire an loigh to sgurr choinnich mor it gets a bit hands on in places.
we then climbed sgurr choinnich beag and decended south to the path in the glen were we had a long but scenic walk back to the car in the glen nevis car park.
this was a fantastic walk with stunning views of the mamores on a cold but clear day.
