Ben Cruachan and Stob Daimh

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Cruachan is one of the finest Munros in the southern Highlands, with jagged peaks and fine rocky ridges as well as stunning views. The ridge walk to Stob Dàimh (misspelt Diamh on some OS maps) makes for a classic circuit around the Cruachan reservoir.


Steep and rocky paths with a little very easy scrambling. The descent can be boggy in the final sections.
