Detailed route description and map

Rois-bheinn round from Inverailort

Other routes and challenges

The classic route is the complete horseshoe walk around the ridges from Lochailort as described above. The descent route given could be used to ascend An Stac on its own.

A shorter but much less satisfying alternative is to ascend the three Corbetts from Alisary to the west, involving unpleasant terrain, retracing of steps and deer fences.
