Prior to 1997, Buachaille Etive Mor had only one Munro peak, Stob Dearg. Since then Stob na Broige was also promoted to Munro status, encouraging more hillwalkers to hike along Etive Mor's fine ridges and explore more of the Big Shepherd of Etive.

The most direct route up Stob na Broige would be a quick hike up and down from Dalness in Glen Etive. However, this would do the mountain an injustice, and a far better route from Altnafeadh up through Coire na Tulaich and descending through Lairig Gartain makes for a fine hillwalk, taking in Stob Dearg at the northern end of the mountain.

A detour up nearby Buachaille Etive Beag with its two Munros Stob Dubh and Stob Coire Raineach adds around 3 hours to the route.
