The mountain towering above the eastern shore of Loch Treig is Stob Coire Sgriodain, a rugged Munro with a long ridge travelling north-to-south.

Stob Coire Sgriodain has three distinctive tops which form a ridge that overlooks Coire an Lochain. The higher ground of the ridge is bouldery with Stob Coire Sgriodain's summit perched above cliffs and crags that drop directly down to Loch Treig below.

Extending the ridge south-east links to the grassy slopes of Stob Coire Sgriodain's neighbour Chno Dearg - a higher Munro mountain but not as characterful as Coire Sgriodain.
