Stob Coire Creagach (Binnein an Fhidhleir), Butterbridge

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Stob Coire Creagach is the highest summit of Binnein an Fhidhleir - the latter being the original name of the whole mountain, although walkers often use it to refer to the lower western summit. The mountain impressively walls in the north side of Glen Kinglas. It gives a short hillwalk but with a truly gruelling and unremittingly steep ascent. The views from the ridge are simply superb.


Wet ground at first then drier slopes of grass and rock. The ascent is extremely steep and pathless higher up.

Public Transport

None to start.


Butterbridge car park, A83. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
