    What a beautiful day to be up there. The gully on the left seems to have been taking a lot of traffic.

    Could it be a scree shoot rather than human erosion?

    It's both.

    The gully on the left is the usual route up onto Ruadh Stac Mor. If brave you could take a direct approach onto Ruadh Stac Mor from the loch but the scree on that slope is very large and moves a lot. I wish I had taken that gully

    thanks. it was a cracking day.

    we came down the gully, which was straightforward enough going on wee ledges.

    LOL AT

    At first glance the direct approach looked ok




    But soon changed my mind when we got on it. AT is in amongst that somewhere

    We also had an entertaining descent from Spidean Coire nan Clach (the second Munro on Beinn Eighe) on snow & scree But still a cracking day out

    It's a better ascent to the right of the Buttresses, on a grassy slope, and then scramble up to Coinneach Mhor - not as difficult as it looks.

    On this route, I took in Sail Mhor, Ruadh Stac Mor and followed the ridge as far as Spidean Coire nan Clach, when I did Beinn Eighe last month. Great day out.
