Stob Coire Sgreamhach is really part of the Bidean nam Bian massif but become a Munro in its own right in 1997. This fine summit is situated where the Beinn Fhada ridge joins the main ridge across the back of Bidean. Beinn Fhada is tricky terrain - particularly in descent - and the Lost Valley is the route usually used, involving a steep and eroded climb up scree.
Region: Fort William
Altitude: 1072 metres

Note that the Beinn Fhada ridge is not recommended for hillwalkers as a descent route from Stob Coire Sgreamhach.
Scramblers can reach Sgurr Coire nan Lochan and then Bidean by tackling the zig-zag route on the east side of Gearr Aonach - visible from the Glencoe road but harder to locate closer up. Head into the Lost Valley to reach the foot of this route.
