Mountaineering in Stob Coire nan Lochan, Glencoe, Highlands and Islands United Kingdom

Glencoe is a small village in the Highlands of Scotland. Its surrounding area is familiar to most of us, since the filming of ''Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Askaban'' and ''Skyfall'' have taken place there. Stob Coire nan Lochan is the ideal choice for either amateurs or experienced in mountaineering.

Stob Coire nan Lochan is the northern summit of Bidean nam Bian. It is an inspiring ascent for any newcomer in Scotland’s natural beauties. It is said that Glencoe is the wettest part of the Highlands and heavy rain can very often turn parts of walks around into impassable.

Although Stob Coire nan Lochan is usually used as a stopping point to Bidean, this mountain has many excellent routes of all grades to offer to mountaineers. Defined by high steep ridges, tall columnar cliffs, deeply cut gullies, rock step of boulders and small notches in the ridges, are some of the features that set the scene up to the peak. Sometimes, during the ascent, you will have the opportunity to admire the waterfalls crashing down with a great force. The view from the summit is magnificent, so don’t miss it!
