Ben More and Stob Binnein

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben More dominates Crianlarich and the road east, an enormous green pyramid offering no obvious easy approaches; the ascent is unrelenting. Its near neighbour Stob Binnein is often regarded as its twin, but this more retiring summit is actually the finer of the two peaks, a graceful cone above its supporting ridges.


Very steep ascent and descent for almost all the walk. There are pathless sections with boggy ground, and some dangerous terrain if the route is lost. Higher up the ridges are broad with one avoidable scramble on Ben More.
