Stob a' Choin may not reach the Munro status of its near neighbours, but it must rank amongst the steepest and most rugged peaks in this part of the Highlands. The ascent is very demanding although short in distance. The delightful summit is a very fine viewpoint. The terrain would be slightly easier if the descent route given here is used for both ascent and descent - although this involves more ups and downs.
Pathless, very steep, rough and boggy terrain.
None to start.
Car park just short of Inverlochlarig.
