Stob Binnein is a mountain in the southern Highlands of Scotland, near Crianlarich. It forms a twin-peak with Ben More 3,852ft (1,174 m), from which it is separated by the Bealach-eadar-dha Beinn, meaning pass between two hills.

Stob Binnein is often climbed in conjunction with Ben More by means of the Bealach-eadar-dha Beinn. Descent may be made from the bealach direct to Benmore Burn. It may also be climbed from the south, starting near Inverlochlarig, some 8 km from Balquhidder. A route of about 5 km climbs from the glen, following the mountain's southern ridge over the intervening minor summits of Stob Invercarnaig and Stob Coire an Lochain.
