Situated between Glen Lyon and Gleann Daimh, Stuchd an Lochain rests in a remote location with its summit cairn perched above Loch an Daimh.

The most often climbed route up Stuchd an Lochain is a there-and-back hike from the Giorra Dam at the eastern end of Loch an Daimh. Typically taking 3-4 hours, this leaves plenty of time in the day to aim up Meall Buidhe on the opposite side of the loch.

Stuchd an Lochain can also be bagged from Pubil immediately to the south in Glen Lyon. Although this is a rougher approach with more ascent, it allows the option to hike over the nearby Corbett peaks of Meall Buidhe and Sron a'Choire Chnapanich.
