Stob Coire Sgreamhach

Stob Coire Sgreamhach is a mountain in Scotland, forming part of the Bidean nam Bian massif on the southern side of Glen Coe. It is often considered a subsidiary peak of Bidean, though since the 1997 revision of Munros Tables it has been classified as a separate Munro.

The mountain is usually climbed in conjunction with Bidean nam Bian, thus allowing for a traverse of the range. One of the most common routes from Glen Coe is to ascend the head of the Hidden Valley to reach the bealach between Stob Coire Sgreamhach and Bidean nam Bian. This valley, also known as the Lost valley, is so-named due to its narrow lower reaches, which hide the broad floor of the upper glen from view when seen from Glen Coe. The local Clan MacDonald are alleged to have used the glen to hide stolen cattle, hence the Gaelic name of Coire Gabhail, the Glen of Capture'.

Another route of ascent is via Beinn Fhada, the most easterly of the famous Three Sisters of Glen Coe. This route also starts from the Hidden Valley, but then ascends steeply up the ridge that marks the southeastern edge of the glen. Stob Coire Sgreamhach may also be climbed from Glen Etive to the southeast by way of a steep rocky ridge.
