817 m (2680 ft)

This is the standard notation used on Ordnance Survey Landranger maps.

Each reference consists of two letters identifying a 100,000 metre square block then three digits defining the Easting and finally the three digits defining the Northing with reference to the South West corner of the block.

NN166712 is the grid reference for the summit of Ben Nevis. Where you are given the map number ( For Ben Nevis = 41) it is acceptable to omit the two initial letters e.g. 166712. (Instructions on how to read the references are given on the OS maps).

A description of the characteristics of the mountain including any hazards of which you should be aware.

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.

NO I'm not going to carry a tripod! Trig point Beinnein an Fhidhleir. Not the highest point along the ridge, that's 817m belonging to the summit with no name which I propose we call "Boot Hill" cos it smells like wet leather!

It made for an entertaining short day in the snow, poor visibility, blizzards and crags to navigate.

The ascent of Stob Coire Creagach is steep, but easy to follow. Binnien an Fhidhlier seems a fair distance from it once you are up there, but worth the walk over. I had a clear day, and the views were excellent. Came straight down from the trig point to the road, rather than re-trace my steps (which ad been the original plan. Startled a herd of deer in the process.
