Stob a Choire Mheadhoin is usually climbed in Conjunction with Stob Coire Easain to make a great day out in “The Easains” Both hills share similar properties and are nearly the same height, Stob a Choire Mheadhoin is just 10m lower. The two Hills form an arc around the rim of Coire Easain Beag with Stob Choire a Mheadhoin sitting in the north of the arc. The summit is made up of 3 ridges. The SW ridge leads round the rim of the above mentioned corrie to a high col before joining the summit ridge of Stob Coire Easain. The NE ridge gently slopes back down to Fersit in Glen Spean. This is the normal route of ascent. A small ridge runs E of the summit round the rim of Coire Mheadhoin before dropping sharply to the shores of Loch Treig.
From Stob Choire a Mheadhoin you get great views of the NE slopes of Stob Coire Easain which is an extremely impressive sight.
The hill is best viewed from the NE where it appears as a solitary peak with a conical summit. It is also well viewed from the Munros on the other side of Loch Treig. The steep eastern slopes are a great sight from this angle.
The usual approach as mentioned is from Fersit in the north summiting Mheadhoin via its long NE ridge however you can climb from the south if you are coming in via the train at Corrour Halt. In this case you would climb Stob Coire Easain first.
Overall, no matter which route you take these hills should make a superb day out each offering their own unique character.
