Ben Challum, near Tyndrum

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Challum is not a distinguished peak when seen from the A82, as to this side it shows only sprawling grassy slopes. From the Glen Lochay side its fine peak is more prominent. The ascent is usually made from Kirkton Farm, with boggy lower slopes but a fine final ridge connecting the two summits.


Faint path up fairly easy angled hillside; very boggy for much of the way. Some of the stiles are awkward!

Public Transport

Citylink buses pass along the nearby A82 between Fort William and Glasgow.


Layby on A82 just north of Kirkton Farm turning. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.

Deer Stalking information
