Stob Coire a' Chearcaill, from Loch Eil

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Stob Coire a' Chearcaill is a familiar sight across Loch Linnhe from Fort William, but far fewer people actually climb it. This is the easiest route, making use of a track to avoid the boggiest terrain lower down. The views - as might be expected - are excellent.


Hill track up to ridge, then short, rough pathless boggy section before easier going to the summit.

Public Transport

None to start.


Blaich, Loch Eil side. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
