The Ring of Steall, Mamores

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The Ring of Steall is a real classic mountain route combining the traverse of four Munros with scrambling along narrow, rocky aretes. The route takes in An Gearanach, Stob Choire a Chairn, Am Bodach and then follows the Devils Ridge to Sgurr a'Mhaim.


Well defined path for almost all the route, but there are many sections of easy scrambling on rough rocks with exposure. A long, exhausting day.

Public Transport

Bus service between May and September as far as the bridge at the Polldubh Falls. Traveline Scotland.


Car park at end of the road up Glen Nevis. Map and directions.
