Lovely mountain area with breathtaking scenery of the coast and the mountain pass. Lots of wildlife in the area as well as the local sheep and lambs.

Got lucky with the weather and climbed Ben More on a beautifully sunny and warm October day. Great views throughout the climb. Easy to follow track from parking (on the grass verge on the road) up to the summit. Really enjoyed climbing my first Munro!

Ben More now remains is the only Munro which must involve a ferry trip before it is climbed. You can still take the ferry to Skye but the bridge is now an option. Its isolated location affords unequalled views which extends as far as the...More

This is a fairly easy walk and quite pleasant. Turn off A848 just north of Salen, go past Forestry commission offices and stop at the car park with picnic bench in front. Walk down the track, where after a few hundred yards you will see...More

Second walk up Ben More by alt dhiesaig, this is quite boggy on the first pull up so ideally you need waterproof boots on, its also quite steep as you only cover five and a half miles up and down but it is worth the...More
