Mullach nan Coirean is a Scottish mountain situated in the Mamores group of hills. It reaches a height of 939 metres (3081 feet) and is located eight kilometres north-west of Kinlochleven. It is the most westerly of the ten Munros in the Mamores and it is connected to the adjoining mountain of Stob Bàn by a col with a height of 846 metres; these two Munros are often climbed together from Glen Nevis. The mountain's name translates from the Gaelic as Summit of the Corries or Top of the Corries and this is quite fitting as Mullach nan Coirean has four corries on its slopes. Mullach can also mean a "roof" . However it is unusual that the name does not include reference to the mountains distinct red tinge cause by its red granite rock.
