Details for Stob Coir' an Albannaich

Stob Coir'an Albannaich lies on the east side of the lower Glen Etive and rises steeply above the glen and its summit is hidden beyond the lower slopes. Stob Coir' an Albannaich is a large and complex craggy mountain and with its satellite Beinn Chaorach (850 metres) extends 9 kilometres from north-west to south-east. Stob Coir'an Albannaich links to the munro Glas Beinn Mhor on the south west by a bealach which drops to 738 metres and can be ascended here. The munro Meall nan Eun can be accessed via the hill Meall Tarsuinn (875 metres) via another bealach (754 metres) on the north east. However care should be taken in poor visibility as the ridge drops diagonally for 1/2 km to a more level section, then back west.

Usual access is from Glen Etive heading south after crossing the bridge at Coileitir and then heading up the open hillside where the River Etive and Allt Mheuran meets. The slope is a slog and very steep but relatively straightforward.

The summit sports an unusually big cairn which is an old relic of early theodolite triangulation by the Ordnance Survey.

Views from the summit are Glen Coe Hills on the north, Black Mount hills to the east, and Ben Cruachan on the south west.
