Loch Treig Munros

The imposing peaks of Stob a'Choire Mheadhoin and Stob Coire Easain above the western shore of Loch Treig are commmonly refered together as "the Easains". On the other side of the loch, Stob Coire Sgriodain's craggy summit sits above a dramatic drop directly above Loch Treig, hiding the vast grassy expanse of Chno Dearg.


Main route summary


These two mountain groups lying either side of Loch Treig share the same starting point. It therefore makes sense to bag all four Munro peaks on the same day.

Stob a'Choire Mheadhoin and Stob Coire Easain are high grey peaks with bouldery summits that have a lovely ridge up to and between them. Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain on the opposite side of Loch Treig the east side couldn't be more different - there are long grassy and heathery slogs to reach the summits.

The craggy Corbett peaks of Sgurr Innse and Cruach Innse can be combined with 'the Easains', starting and finishing from Corriechoille.
