Details for Stuchd an Lochain

Stuchd an Lochain is a Munro lies at the western end of Glen Lyon and forms the southern side of Loch an Daimh. The summit cairn is situated on the western side of a broad ridge which arcs around Lochan nan Cat  250m below, where the northern corrie drops down to. This north facing corrie is the finest feature of Stuchd an Lochain  which all other sides gently rising grassy slopes.

Usual access to the summit is from the Stuchd an Lochain which is 400m. Start from the car park  head to the southend of of the dam continueing west for a bit. Then head up a faint path up steep slopes to reach the eastern ridge where you can follow a line of fence posts which lead along Creag an Fheadain. From here the ridge turns roughly north for a short distance before turning north-west to the summit. Descend the same way. Alternatively access can be gained from Pubil which is just below the dam on the east of Loch Lyon on the southern side, then head up the south western slopes of Stuchd an Lochain to reach the summit.

Fit walkers can continue west for a circular walk around the loch taking in a Corbett, Sron a'Choire Chnapanich, and another Munro, Meall Buidhe.
