Spidean Coir' an Laoigh
Beinn Damh is a splendid mountain with steep slopes and crags. Beinn Damh rises from Beinn Bheag on the shore of Loch Torridon, SE to the craggy fortress of Sgurr na Bana Mhoraire (687m). From here the ridge continues SE to Meall Gorm (675m) and drops down to the col above Toll Ban (light coloured hollow) which is the main ascent point from the NE.

The ridge then ascends round the rim of Toll ban to a top (868m) from where a narrowing ridge continues SSE then SE to the highest point Spidean Coir an Laoigh (903m) . From here a descent is possible NE through the crags to the path in Drochaid Coire Roill.

Sron a' Choire Chnapanich
Sron a' Choire Chnapanich and Meall Buidhe are two peaks located between Loch Lyon and Loch an Daimh and should be climbed together.

Sron a' Choire Chnapanich which is the smaller of the two could be considered an outlying top of Stuchd an Lochain to which it is connected by a high col (630m). It is a triangular hill with steep slopes to the NW and NE, but its S slopes are easy to moderate linking by a col (610m) to Meall Buidhe.

Stob a' Bhealach an Sgriodain
Stob a' Bhealach an Sgriodain is the name given by some publications to a high point on the W ridge Meal Mor which happens to be 11m higher than the much more substantial Meall Mor.

This W ridge divides beyond Bealach an Sgroidain, with branches running NNW and SSW. To the E of Meall Mor (759m) there are two further ridges running NNE and SE, the latter connecting to Stob a' Chuir (717m).

Meall Mor is a remote peak requiring a long walk in from the A830 to the N or an even longer approach from the E via Cona Glen or Glen Scaddle.

Stob a' Choin
Stob a'Choin is a compact craggy mountain with relatively steep slopes and many rocky outcrops. There are two main tops, Stob a'Choin to the W and an un-named top to the E (estimated 835m).

Stob a'Choin has a double top, and it is the S top which is the true summit. The normal access is from the road by the River Larig to the N.

Stob an Aonaich Mhoir
The steep and craggy W slopes of Stob an Aonaich Mhoir face Beinn Bheoil and Ben Alder across Loch Ericht. The hill is elongated NNE to SSW (parallel at the loch) and has a single spur on its E slopes to Carn Dearg. The E slopes are much more gentle and with the exception of Carn Dearg are crag free.

Stob an Aonaich Mhoir is normally climbed with Beinn Mholach and the pair can be accessed from Bridge of Ericht on Loch Rannoch, to the S, or from Dalnaspidal Lodge on the A9 to the NE.

Stob Coire a' Chearcaill
Stob Coire a' Chearcaill is the highest point on the land mass at the head of Gleann Sron a' Chreagain. To the N of the glen runs a broad ridge the Braigh Bhlaich which runs 3.5km ENE to Ceann Caol.

As a path leads along the N bank of the Abhainn Sron a' Chreagain as far as Ceann Caol, this makes the logical ascent route.

An ascent from Cona Glen to the S where there is a good track is also possible. The slopes at the head of Gleann Sron a' Chreagain are steep and stony and should be avoided.

Stob Coire Creagach
To the north of Glen Kinglas lies a steep sided hill with several craggy tops, Binnein an Fhidhlier (811m), Creag Bhrosgan (771m), an unnamed top known as Stob Coire Creagach (817m) and a fourth top (748m) - also un-named.

The southern slopes are steep grass with rocky outcrops only on the higher slopes, whereas the eastern slopes are much more craggy.

The normal approach to this hill is a slog up the steep southern slopes.

Stob Dubh
Beinn Ceitlein is the name given to the second highest of three peaks in this mountain, the higher being Stob Dubh . It seems logical that Beinn Ceitlein should be considered the mountain name, as this mountain forms the N wall of Glen Ceitlein.

Whatever your views, Stob Dubh and Beinn Ceitlein are connected by a high ridge, 765m, and you should climb both peaks whilst there.

This is a complex hill with four ridges, SW and N from Stob Dubh , S turning W and N turning E from Beinn Ceitlein. The slopes are moderately steep with frequent rocky outcrops which are easily bypassed during ascent.

Streap lies on a long ridge that separates Glen Finnan from Gleann Dubh Lighe.

The ridge runs from Beinn an Tuim (810m) NNE over Meall an Uillt Chaoil (844m) and Stob Coire nan Cearc (887m) to Streap. The ridge then turns ESE to Streap Comhlaidh (898m) before continuing NNE to an unnamed top (567m). The slopes are moderately steep with rock outcrops and crags mainly at higher altitudes.

From Stob Coire nan Cearc (887m) to Streap there is considerable exposure on a narrow ridge. Streap can be ascended from either Glen Finnan or from Gleann Dubh Lighe.
