Ben Wyvis, near Garve
Ben Wyvis is a vast and sprawling mountain whose isolated position makes it the dominating feature of a wide area of the Highlands. The ascent to its spacious plateau is a simple walk in good summer conditions by Munro standards and there are very extensive views from the summit.
Easy ascent on paths through the forest initially, followed by much steeper ground on the path ascending to An Cabar.
