In the heart of Glen Etive, Stob Dubh rises steeply from the glen floor and is the highest point on the mass of Beinn Ceitlein, a hill standing on its own, yet hemmed in on all sides by higher mountains.

Stob Dubh is situated on the opposite side of the River Etive from the minor road that travels through Glen Etive, therefore an approach really has to be from one of the two bridges over the river either side of the hill. The most direct approach is from Glen Ceitlein to the south-west of Stob Dubh, from where an estate track leads to the base of the hill, followed by some hiking up a steep grass-covered hillside.
