Details for Stob Dearg

Stob Dearg is the highest of the 4 peaks which form the ridge Buachaille Etive Mor and is situated on the north eastern side of this long ridge. Buachaille Etive Mor stands in an angle between Glen Coe< & Glen Etive< with the River Etive & River Coupall bounding it's edges. Stob Dearg's summit peak on the north end presents to Rannoch Moor with the appearance of a broken black symmetrical cone and rises almost directly from the moorland below. This clean pointed wall of rhyolite rock makes it one of the most recognisable peaks in the Highlands of Scotland and is best viewed on the A82 around NN245550 where there's a lay-by.

The Buachaille Etive Mòr is an elongated 8km(5m) ridge running north-eastern to south westerly which contains the four peaks Stob Dearg (1022m), Stob na doire< (1011m), Stob na Broige< (956m & Stob Coire Altrum< (941m).

Usual access is from A82 road at Altnafeadh NN220563 where there's an obvious path which leads up Coire na Tulaich eventually leading to a steep slope of scree which needs to scrambled up which gives access to the ridge and the 4 summits. Alternatively access can be had from the Glen Etive< by getting onto the ridge by climbing Stob na Broige<.
