Stuchd an Lochain (Scottish Gaelic: Stùc an Lochain) is a Munro situated in the Southern Highlands of Scotland. It lies at the western end of Glen Lyon and forms the southern side of Loch an Daimh. The summit sits above a large corrie that contains a small lochan. The primary route to the summit leaves from the eastern end of Loch an Daimh and climbs the ridge to the top of Sron Chona Choirein. From here the ridge turns roughly north for a short distance before turning north-west to the summit. Fit walkers can continue west for a circular walk around the loch taking in a Corbett, Sròn a' Choire Chnapanich, and another Munro, Meall Buidhe.
