Stob Ban (Grey Corries)

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Stob Ban is rather hidden away behind the much higher peaks of the Grey Corries. However it is a steep and shapely peak in its own right, and well repays the approach walk. The tiny Lairig Leacach bothy sits at its foot.


Good track for the approach; ridge path is wet lower down and steep higher up.

Public Transport

None to start.


Parking off track at NN255788 beyond Corriechoille. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
