Arrived at corrour on the sleeper at 9 0 clock and dropped off the bags and got ready for a walk and was on the path by 1015. The sun was out and there was very little wind we took the option of the lake path rather than the higher path from the hostle on the toss of a coin. To gain the first summit head off the path, after peters stone, by the allt a choire adhair bhig at 45 deg towards gualainn chlachach shoulder from there the ground flatens out and the summit is visible and from here on there is a well trod path. The path continues down to the col between the two summits and back up sgor gaibhre,good views to be had here of ben alder and all the other summits (weather permitting)the path then heads off to the left to go over the monro top of sgor choinnich which is where we left the path and headed down for the eastern end of loch ossian and the wander back to the hostle for tea.
