An alternative is to leave the car at the car park south of Loch Lubhair next to the main road.Just follow the road to Benmore farm where the route starts and climbs up Benmore Burn along the Bealach-eader-dha-Beinn which is a col between the mountains. From there you walk up to the summit of Stob Binnein. The map above shows the starting point from Benmore Farm and the car park south of Loch Lubhair.

This starting point is situated West of Balquhidder and is the most popular one for climbing Stob Binnein. The path climbs up along the grassy slopes. This route is also the easiest for climbing Stob Binnein. On the map above you can see the starting point of the path.

 

The walk to Stob Binnein can be combined with some routes of the neighbour mountains such as Meall na Dige (966m), Stob Creagach (904m) and the most popular Ben More (1174m).
