Details for Stob Choire Claurigh

The upper part of the mountain and the main section of the ridge is composed of pale grey quartzite rocks and scree making an eye-catching sight which is well seen from the A86 road which runs to the north of the mountain.

Stob Choire Claurigh is munro which includes four high corries, four subsidiary tops, and long, northern slopes which drop to the valley of the River Spean.

The four main corries on the munro are steeply walled, holding snow well into the spring with streams which rise at around the 1000 metre mark, they drain in various directions but all eventually feed the River Spean.

The northern ridge descends for 2 km to the “Munro Top” of Stob Coire Gaibhre (958 metres) continuing for a further two km where it broadens into the Spean valley. Four hundred metres from the summit on the northern ridge is the North Top (1121 metres), at this point a spur goes east to the subsidiary summit of Stob Coire na Ceannain (1123 metres), offering easy scrambling. This eastern spur can be used as a means of ascent up rough, stony slopes from the Lairig Leachach pass.

The two other ridges link to adjacent Munros, with the south ridge connecting to Stob Ban Grey Corries, 1.5 km distant, over a col with a height of 803 metres. The twisting, high level south western ridge continues for 3 km over the “Munro Top” of Stob a’ Choire Lèith (1105 metres) to link to the Munro of Stob Coire an Laoigh.
