I had done stob ban in November in the snow but never carried on round to mullach nan coirean as their were no views and the weather wasn't the best.
Headed back up this way today
Weather was to be dry with maybe the odd snow flurry and a SE wind.
No snow flurries ( snow swirling on the summit) and the wind was err - rather windy.
Good wee path through the forest up to the track. Round this to a wee cairn then up another path to the stile.
I basically followed the right side of the gully before going across the stream and up to the ridge. You could turn left after the stile and follow the fence line up to the main ridge.
Fantastic views all round with all the tops covered in snow from about 600 m up. The Ben looking great with a wee covering of cloud on its summit.
Reached the summit. Good pull up through the frozen rocks and snow.
Stupidly took a glove off to get my phone out and take some pics. Hand nearly froze solid after a minute.
Didn't stay long and headed back down - carefully in the wind- following the fence line.
As the lad I met on the descent said " that was brutal up there eh"
Usual stops on the way back through Glencoe to admire the sights.
Fantastic walk and day
Cap doffed to mullach nan coirean
