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.
Altitude
721 m (2365 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.

 Description
A remote hill, Stob Mhic Bheathain lies in Ardgour between Cona Glen and Gleann an Lochain Dubh and forms a long undulating ridge between the two Glens.

Whilst it is uniformly steep on the SW side above Gleann an Lochain Dubh, each top on the ridge offers craggy ridges to the NE towards Cona Glen.

The A861 road at the E end of Cona Glen provides the nearest access, but this is still some considerable distance from the foot of the hill.

General Considerations
