Ben More and Stob Binnein dominate the skyline of the Southern Highlands near Crianlarich. At over 3800ft each they are second only in this region to Ben Lawers. A very formidable pairing, with notoriously big and steep slopes, this is a classic and popular outing that you should allow a full day. In winter the steep slopes make it a serious venture.
