Bidean nam Bian has an elevation of 1,150 m (3,770 ft) and is the highest point in the former historic county of Argyll. It is a mountain made up of many subsidiary peaks and ridges. A noticeable feature of Bidean nam Bian is the Three Sisters of Glencoe, a beautiful area of rolling hills and waterfalls.
There are multiple routes of well-worn paths to the summit of Bidean nam Bian. However, these are very rocky with sections of steep scree, with light scrambling in places. A start point can be made from the Glencoe Car Park.
