Stob Diamh is a peak that lies on the east end of the Cruachan horseshoe ridge rising directly to the north of "Cruachan Reservoir" and helps to form the large corrie enclosing it. On the western side of the summit ridge is the peak Drochaid Ghlas which connects to the main munro of the ridge Ben Cruachan. To the south lies the top Stob Diamh Stob Garbh form which Stob Diamh is easily accessed via a narrow ridge. This peak with it's two satellites (Stob Garbh ,Drochaid Ghlas) forms the east facing horse shaped ridge that towers over the glaciated valley of the Allt Coire Chreachainn below which can be best viewed from the B8077 road about NN136288 . The Cruachan ridge which Stob Diamh lies on is generally a long rocky ridge that runs from the west to east for just over 3km with many smaller ridges heading down both the Loch Awe side and the Glen Noe side.
