Stob Coire a’ Albannaich means corrie of the Scotsman, a fantastic name for a fantastic hill. It sits deep in Glen Etive on the southern side of the single track road that runs the length of the glen. It is a large complex mountain made up of a large number of craggy outcrops and summit ridges in its upper reaches. The northern corries are a fantastic sight but are only really visible from surrounding hills. Stob Coire a’ Albannaich is normally climbed in conjunction with Meall nan Eun in a long but rewarding day out. Fine views are to be had of the Ben Starav group of Munros as well as looking north towards Glencoe with Bidean Nam Bian being in your direct line of sight. For whatever reason Stob Coire a’ Albannaich is rarely visited and is bypassed by most in favour of the more well known peaks in Glencoe. Their loss !!
Parking is available in forms of lay-bys dotted along the single track road that runs through Glen Etive from Glencoe
