Quick Facts
This is the height of the mountain above sea level. However, on the climb, it is the ascent that matters, i.e. the sum of all the uphill parts of the route.
764 m (2506 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).

Mountain names are usually in Gaelic, the native language of the Scottish Highlands, or have been derived from the old Scots and Norse languages. We give the most commonly accepted meaning, but accept that some of these are disputed.

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

Cnoc Coinnich was resurveyed in May of 2016 and found to be 2.5m higher than previously surveyed. This means it is no longer one of the highest Grahams but a Corbett.

Cnoc Coinnich is situated in the Ardgoil peninsula between Loch Goil to the W and Loch Long to the E.

It lies to the S of the Corbetts Ben Donich and The Brack, and all three could be climbed in one outing.

Forestry tracks from Lochgoilhead to the W provide the nearest access.

General Considerations
 Temperature decreases by 1degree C for every 100m of ascent.
 Wind usually increases with altitude.
 Visibility can change markedly with cloud level.
 River/Stream levels can increase markedly in one day.

Make a day of it and walk south the Corran Lochan then back over The Saddle and Beinn Reithe to Cnoc Coinnich. Rough going but fantastic views in all directions.
