With a start at over 400 metres, Stuchd an Lochain gives a short ascent for a Munro. The initial climb is steep and boggy but the ridge traverse that follows around above the corrie cradling little Lochan nan Cat, is a delight, and the summit views are superb.
Steep, wet and eroded ascent to the ridge. Once on the ridge there is a line of fenceposts and path leading more easily to the summit.
No public transport.
Below Giorra Dam, Loch an Dàmh.
