At the western end of the Mamores range, Mullach nan Coirean rises above Glen Nevis, its bouldery summit in stark contrast to its heather-clad slopes and the forestry in the glen.

From forestry in Glen Nevis, Mullach nan Coirean can be climbed following a tracks and paths directly up its north-eastern shoulder.

Mullach nan Coirean is linked to Stob Ban via twisting crests that hug Coire Dearg and with a drop of less than 100m, most hillwalkers will choose to hike over both these Munros in one continuous circular route.

For fit hikers and hill-runners, here is also the option of bagging Mullach nan Coirean as part of a complete Mamores traverse (or even a longer Tranter's Round or Ramsay's Round).
