Elevation is the altitude of a place above sea level.
Peak’s prominence is the least vertical to be covered to get from the summit to any other higher terrain.

Mountains in Scotland with a height of over 914 m / 3 000 ft bear a special name, the Munros. They are named after Sir Hugh Munro, the 4th Baronet (1856–1919), who produced the first list of such hills, known as Munro’s Tables, in 1891.
Stùc a' Chroin is a mountain located in the southern part of the Highlands of Scotland. It lies to the south of Ben Vorlich, which is itself bounded to the north by Loch Earn, and to the west by Loch Lubnaig. The boundary between the council areas of Perth and Kinross and Stirling passes through the summit of the peak, and the town of Callander lies to the south.
Stùc a' Chroin is most often climbed in conjunction with Ben Vorlich from Ardvorlich on Loch Earnside to the north. The normal routes of ascent is over the summit of Ben Vorlich and down its south west ridge to the Bealach an Dubh Choirein. From this bealach a rough path cuts very steeply up on the right (NW) side of the prominent buttress to the summit of Stùc a' Chroin. Returning from the bealach, Ben Vorlich can be skirted by a pathless traverse of grassy slopes to the pass on its east.
An alternative is from Ardchullarie on Loch Lubnaig up the forest path to the head of Glen Ample and over Beinn Each, a Corbett. The linking ridge is very rough and rocky. On return, the open west slopes of Beinn Each can be descended, encountering the remarkable eggbox terrain of a large rock slope failure (see Lochearnhead, Glen Ample)
A longer, unfrequented route of ascent to Stùc a' Chroin from Arivurichardich ascends the mountain's south east ridge.
There's a trail leading to the summit.
