Stob Coire a' Chearcaill, from Loch Eil
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.
None to start.
Blaich, Loch Eil side.
