Stob Ghabhar and Stob a'Choire Odhair

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Stob Ghabhar is the finest of the Black Mount summits, its narrow rocky ridges and steep sides standing out amongst the hills of the southern Highlands. Stob a'Choire Odhair is an easier ascent with a magnificent view over Rannoch Moor. Combining both peaks, this route is a fine expedition for experienced hillwalkers.


Serious mountain walk including one very steep and loose ascent section, a narrow rocky ridge and a steep scrambly descent by a waterfall.
