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

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.
