Quite an easy route taking in 2 munros which rise on the western end of The Mamores. The route heads up the south eastern ridge of the first munro Mullach nan Coirean from Glen Nevis onto an excellent ridge leading to the more distinguished munro Stob Ban. The decent is down into Coire a' Mhusgail returning to Glen Nevis.

This round trip is a classic walk for the munro baggers.
