The mountain towering above the eastern shore of Loch Treig is Stob Coire Sgriodain, a rugged Munro with a long ridge travelling north-to-south.

Stob Coire Sgriodain has three distinctive tops which form a ridge that overlooks Coire an Lochain. The higher ground of the ridge is bouldery with Stob Coire Sgriodain's summit perched above cliffs and crags that drop directly down to Loch Treig below.

Extending the ridge south-east links to the grassy slopes of Stob Coire Sgriodain's neighbour Chno Dearg - a higher Munro mountain but not as characterful as Coire Sgriodain.



Hillwalking routes up Stob Coire Sgriodain



1. Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain »


East of Loch Treig are the two Munros of Chno Dearg and Stob Coire Sgriodain. Very different in character and linked together by a vast grass-covered plateau, the easiest approach is from Fersit to the north-west.

Ascent : 1250m (4100ft)
Distance : 16km (10m)
Time : 6hr

2. Beinn na Lap to Chno Dearg route from Laggan »


Most people tackle Beinn na Lap on its own from Ossian. But combining this fairly remote Munro with nearby Stob Coire Sgriodain and Chno Dearg and a cycle in from Laggan makes for a much more memorable day.

Ascent : 1650m (5410ft)
Distance : 42km (26m)
Time : 8hr
