Very spring/summery at layby, definitely winter beyond the waterfall on the walk in. Stunner of a day - found no safe exit via the gully off of Stob Coire Sgreamhach - ended up downclimbing a steep snow slope north of that summit - only the axes enabled us to do this - not recommended, but several groups followed lacking options, exit to A82 via lost valley. Thank god we decided on winter kit!

sunshine pretty much all day. Ascent via Broad Gully in SCNL . Return via high-level traverse of Stob Corie Sgreamhach and Beinn Fhada before finally dropping down into Corie Gabhail (the hidden valley)
