Mount Charles Stewart is a long ridge that parallels the Bow Valley to the northeast of Canmore. Mount Lady Macdonald lies at the southeastern end of the ridge. Princess Margaret Mountain and the unofficially named, Squaw's Tit are outliers of Mount Charles Stewart. Both are at the ends of ridges that extend to the southwest and so are prominent when viewed from the Bow Valley and the Town of Canmore. The boundary of Banff National Park includes Princess Margaret Mountain and passes through the highest point of Mount Charles Stewart. A prominent high point on the main ridge of Mount Charles Stewart lies 1.6 km southeast of the main summit, but is approximatly 150 feet lower than the main, broader summit

The summit is quite distinctive when viewed from the Bow Valley in the vicinity of Canmore. Obviously very politically incorrect, the name will likely not be made official but is in common useage.
