Stob Ban (Mamores) from Glen Nevis
Introduction to Walk 3095

Photo from the walk - Stob Ban (Mamores) from Glen Nevis

County/Area - Highland

Author - Peter Smyly

Length - 6.0 miles / 9.8 km

Ascent - 3000 feet / 909 metres

Grade - mod/hard

A Highland walk from Glen Nevis to the shapely white quartzite peak of Stob Ban in the Mamores range of the north-west highlands of Scotland. It may not hold the same attraction as Ben Nevis across the glen, and it sees far fewer walkers, but this is a very satisfying mountain to climb and it has all the attributes you would expect of one of the more rugged and picturesque mountains in Scotland. A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).
