Stob Binnein (1,165m)

Usually walked with the neighbour, Ben More, this Munro is reached after a fairly easy going ridge, or hill pass between the two mountains.

Many argue it’s a more picturesque peak and certainly the views of the summit as you climb upwards, as well as the wider vista from the path, are breathtaking. On a clear day you can see the Trossachs close-by and many lofty peaks of the National Park further afield.

The upland slopes and summits of Ben More and Stob Binnein offer panoramic views over the surrounding area, accessible only by foot. These areas are remote and generally unspoilt. The Stob Binnein Ben More SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) has many rare upland plant communities. Upland birds, eg. ptarmigan, red grouse, breeding waders, skylark, buzzard, golden eagle and mammals like red deer, mountain hare are all present and often visible when hiking.
