Stuc a Chroin - DESCRIPTION

The usual approach to this hill is from Ben Vorlich down a steep descent, broad col and challenging ascent. There are various paths up the steep rocky ridge all of which work well but is also possible to take a direct scrambling route. The finish is very sudden bringing you onto the summit plateau a short walk from the main summit. See if you can find the 20 litres of water stored near the summit for next years Stuck a Chroin 5000 hill race but leave it there. Alternatively you can get to the col from Glen Ample or there is a broad grassy southern ridge which takes you up from the Callander area. For descent there is a steep gully near the rocky ridge or a broad grassy ridge back to Glen Ample. Also you can visit the high lochan a chroin trapped to the south of the summit. For a longer day include a traverse of the ridge leading south to Ben Each. This is the route of the hill race which has a total ascent of 5000ft from Strathyre to the top of the Stuc and back. Congratulations to Robbie Simpson who aced this in 2 hrs 15 mins this year in mist and a cold howling gale.

Great view from the summit. You really are on the edge of the highlands and can see all the way to the Pentlands. Unfortunately the wind farm near Doune is all too visible. Check out the Lochearnhead Hotel. The food there was better than the average pub.
