Stob Coire an Lochain from Stob Binnein

While Stob Binnein and Ben More may be more often recommended from the Crianlarich side, the quieter alternative from the picturesque Balquhidder glen has a lot to recommend it, especially while crowding is a concern.

To avoid having to climb Stob Binnein twice, and to minimise the honeypot effect, the route described here involves a rugged return leg along the lonely Inverlochlarig Glen.

If you can get there within the rules, then soon may be a good time to get these hills done: they're likely to be busier in a few weeks...

Always my favourite way to visit these two, I usually take the punishment of a return over Stob Binnein but once took the Glen one gloomy January. It was truly like a Bruegel painting.

It’s nice and for the keen you can do a logical 4 Munro circuit as well.

However I prefer Dan’s other route which feels more logical https://www.ukhillwalking.com/logbook/r/?i=189

Yup, did that one clockwise a long time ago and I recall it taking an age to get above the 3000 foot plimsoll line! We got back to the car in the dark, to a civil hello from the Crianlarich polis...
