Start from the car park at NN270418, 300m before Victoria Bridge. Follow a short path NE to rejoin the
road, cross Victoria Bridge and turn left at Forest Lodge. Follow the track W by the Abhainn Shira to a
small building at NN256425. Turn N on to the path that follows the Allt Toaig. After about 2km, cross the
Allt Toaig NN2511243958 to gain access to the spur of Aonach Eagach. A faint path may be found. Head NW
up the spur which narrows to a crest and follow it to a summit, 991m. The ridge curves W around the rim of
the magnificent Coirein Lochain leading to the summit of Stob Ghabhar. Return to the 991m summit, just E
of which at NN2370945398 a footpath leads N down the Couloir Buttress. Follow it, curving E to reach a col
at 668m. Either return by descending SE into Coire Toaig by the path or continue E up to the summit of
Stob a’Choire Odhair and descend SW at first on bouldery ground and locate a good stalkers’ path which
leads S and zigzags down to the Allt Toaig path at NN253446. Head down S and return by the outward
route.
