Description: Stob Binnein, rising just to the south of its slightly higher neighbour Ben More, is one of the most prominent peaks in the southern highlands. From many viewpoints it appears to have an almost perfect conical shape, well justifying its name. The ascent of Stob Binnein is often combined with Ben More to give one of the classic mountain traverses of the southern highlands.
The most popular ascent route to Stob Binnein starts from the carpark at the end of the public road 9 kilometres west of Balquhidder. From there climb directly from the roadside up Stob Invercarnaig, along the ridge to Stob Coire an Lochain (1068m), and up the final steepening slope to Stob Binnein.
The first part of the return goes back to Stob Coire an Lochain. From there an alternative descent route crosses the col at the head of Glen Carnaig to reach Meall na Dige (966m). Continue south down a broad grassy ridge to reach the road near the west end of Loch Doine.
