Sorry, There are no Route Cards associated with this hill
Another confusion: Raeburn's Route and Ordinary Route (Central Buttress) are the same route.

There seems to be a bit of confusion on ukclimbing.com between Stob Coire nan Lochan (Glencoe) and Coire an Lochain (N. Cairngorms)in the links from photos in the Gallery section. This could lead to people walking up from the Clachaig looking for Savage Slit !
