Details for Stob Dubh

Stob Dubh is one of the munros on Buachaille Etive Beag and is very much overshadowed by it's larger companion Buachaille Eite Mòr across the Lairig Gartain. Stob Dubh sits on the south western end of the ridge and is the highest point (958 metres).

Easy slopes lie on the north western side of the mountain. The eastern slope is cut by a series of gullies lots of them containing rock pitches. Stob Coire Raineach is linked via a col between the two summits, which is at a height of around 750 metres.

The most common route on the mountain starts from the A82 at the head of Glen Coe. A cairn and a sign mark the existence of a right-of-way to Glen Etive, following the through the Lairig Eilde that separates Buachaille Etive Beag from Bidean nam Bian.
This is the smaller brother of Buachaille Eite Mòr and, whilst still a shapely ridge with wonderful views it's lower in altitude and offers an easier outing than it's famous neighbour.
