Stob a' Choire Mheadhoin (1105m) and Stob Coire Easain (1115m) sit just over 1.25km apart at the southern end of a long, steep-sided ridge. The summits provide excellent panoramic views, particularly to the neighbouring Grey Corries peaks and Ben Nevis, but these views have to be earned. Starting from the parking area near Fersit, good tracks provide an easy 2km walk in along the side of Loch Treig. A moderate climb on a mix of paths and quad bike tracks leads up on to the ridge beside a prominent surveying pillar and any easy walk along the ridge leads to the base of a rocky buttress. A tricky scramble over loose rocks and earth takes you up on to Meall Cian Dearg at the northern end of the 4km summit ridge, from where you have the first sight of the main summits. A narrow path, faint in places, leads along the ridge, skirting the edge of a couple of steep-sided corries with good views down to Loch Treig. A steep climb reaches the summit of Stob a' Choire Mheadhoin and a 150m descent to a high bealach followed by a steeper climb leads to Stob Coire Easain. A shelter cairn perched on the edge of a steep drop provides a good spot for a break, with excellent views. The return route retraces the outward route.
