Just before you pass the Mountain, you will
see a car park with a sign for the path down
the east side named Lairig Gartain. This path
leads 5 miles to Glen Etive, a good path for
The car park for the hike is right next to
the main road on the west side of the Mountain,
as seen right, at about 600ft /200m above sea
A good path leaves from the car park running
up between the first two peaks to about 2,400ft
/ 730m, this is the trail you come back down as
well, only safe way up and down.
Once up on the ridge between the first two
peaks where there is a large cairn, that is the
toughest section completed, with most people
then heading south to the south peak name Stob
Dubh as it is the highest and most scenic with
a bit of a rocky ridge up to the summit, also
it is a nice steady incline trail with good
views south down Glen Etive.
The middle peak is not a Munro, must be
classed as a part of Stob Dubh.
On the same route back, some people visit
the north peak named Stob Coir that is steeper
with loose rock much of the way, then go back
down the same path to the car park, some go to
one summit one day, then return for the other
summit another day.
The best views from Stob Coir are from about
30 yards west of the Summit Cairn looking west
down Glen Coe to the large Glen Coe Viewpoint,
also straight down into the Car Park.
I estimate it is about 3,300ft / 1,006m of
hiking visiting the 3 peaks including the ups
between the mountains and taking away the 600ft
that the car park is above sea level, so will
average 5 and a half hours hiking, add time on
if you like a few breaks.
