A stunning walk on one of the best mountains you can get. Up the lost valley to Stob Coire Sgreamhach then constant brocken spectres all the way along to Bidean nam Bian over to Stob Coire nan Lochan for another brocken spectre before heading down Coire nan Lochan. An unforgettable day with brilliant views!Chris Mac17/11/2018

Climbed with Rach as part of a Bidean Nam Bian walk. Absolutely glorious weather - perfect cloud free summits. Added a few additional tops to e walk along the ridge from Stob Coire Sgreamhach, the scrambling on this ridge was pretty easy. The hidden valley (on ascent) was stunning with lots of Deers.

On the way back down from Bidean nam Bian, having started via the Lost Valley and Stob Coire Sgreamhach. A great Murdo; in any other company it would be a Munro in its own right. No summit views but great views down into the abyssal depths on descent via the NW ridge.milngavie_kenny08/07/2012
