Bidean nam Bian
The highest mountain in the old county of Argyll, Bidean nam Bian is the whole majestic range of mountains on the south side of Glen Coe. It's dramatic northern ridges are known as the Three Sisters, whilst the highest summits of the group are hidden away behind.
Steep, rocky and complex terrain. There are well-worn paths for much of the route (not to Stob Coire nan Lochan) but these are very rocky and there are sections of steep scree and very mild scrambling. The descent from Bealach Dearg is very steep and loose. It usually holds snow until well into summer, making it even more difficult - be prepared for this or save this route for when the snow is gone.
Glasgow - Fort William and Skye buses passes along the A82(T).
Car park in Glen Coe.
