Stob Ban is one of the finest peaks in the Mamores, its quartzite summit giving magnificent views. A very fine ridge traverse links it to its westerly neighbour Mullach nan Coirean, giving an excellent circuit.


Scree and shattered rocky ridges on Stob Ban; easier going on Mullach nan Coirean, with some boggy ground on descent. This is a steep mountain walk, but with good paths for most of the route.
