Unnamed on Ordnance Survey maps, Beinn Stacath is sometimes spelt Stacach and is also known by the names Stob Fear-tomhais or Ceann na Baintighearna, (the latter is actually its northern top above the forestry flanking Loch Voil). The approach from Glen Buckie in the east is the most straightforward, up boggy and rather featureless slopes.


Pathless and boggy terrain; river crossing can be avoided by 1km detour

Public Transport
