In Glen Etive, near the head of Loch Etive, the wide sweeping grass-covered west facing slopes of Stob Coir' an Albannaich rise directly from birch woodlands in the glen. In contrast are the many spurs and corries on the mountain's east and north-facing aspects with Stob Coir' an Albannaich's summit standing above a precipitous drop.

Stob Coir' an Albannaich can be approached from Glen Etive directly up its west facing slopes, from the path following the Allt Mheuran up to the col connecting Stob Coir' an Albannaich with Glas Bheinn Mhor, or from Glen Ceitlein, most likely commbining the mountain with its neighbouring Munro, Meall nan Eun.

I've also approached Stob Coir' an Albannaich with Meall nan Eun from Victoria Bridge by Loch Tulla, cycling along the estate tracks to within around 4km of the summits.
