Stob Coire an Lochain from Stob Binnein


Stob Coire an Lochain from Stob Binnein.

What a fantastic days walking near Crianlarich, Scotland, on Ben More and Stob Binnein! Driving up from Perth this morning, we hadn't decided on which hills to climb today. Turning up Glen Dochart, the twin peaks of Ben More and Stob Binnein came into view and the decision was made instantly! The two peaks vie for attention and whilst Ben More is the daddy, Stob Binnein to me is the shaplier peak.

As we'd climbed the peaks previously from Balquidder and also Ben More's East ridge, we chose today the strength sapping 1000 metre haul up from Ben More farm. At the snow line at approximately 700 metres, the crampons came out and thereafter it is difficult to describe what a brilliant day was enjoyed! I hope the pictures do justice to what was an unforgettable day!
