Henry Castle on Deep Cut Chimney, Glencoe © wee jamie

Crag features

Stob Coire nam Beith is a subsiduary summit of Bidean nam Bian: the 500m north face holds a range of classic low and mid grade winter routes and some more recent, harder mixed offerings.

There is also some limited rock climbing ranging from scrambles up into the low E grades.

Approach notes

Park just off the A82 in a small car park by Achnambeithhach. Walk a little way along the A82 towards Glencoe Village and climb over the road barrier and go through a gate at the other side of the bridge.

Follow the well constructed path upwards, further up; take the right branch when the stream splits. Around 1 hour 30 to the base on the crag.
